Embracing Agility

This year, schools in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa are embracing agility to maximize their impact and stay ahead of a changing world. Join business school leaders and innovators for conversations and insights to embrace agility in:

  • Creating curriculum and delivery models for student success
  • Positively impacting local communities through research, teaching, and operations
  • Mobilizing resources to focus on innovation after COVID-19
  • Collaborating across disciplines and with corporate partners in a virtual environment

Blend learning and networking in a four-day virtual event which leverages the diversity of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa’s most innovative and influential business schools. Share your successes and challenges with peers in an updated virtual environment that prioritizes impactful takeaways, thoughtful reflection, and collaboration with peers.

Address a wide range of the most pressing challenges facing business schools in EMEA including the still-emerging impacts of COVID-19. Embrace agility as we seek to define and create solutions for those challenges.
