As we’re all adapting to the new situation to the best of our abilities, EFMD and the BSIS team are working hard to ensure that all our members can continue their learning journey.

That is why we decided to transform the BSIS Symposium into a virtual event and offer a series of ten interactive meetings, featuring the BSIS team and experts alongside business schools, who went through the process.

Starting on 9 April, the series of ten webinars will take place every Tuesday and Thursday from 13:00 CET, and the final session is scheduled for 12 May. You can learn more about the event and subscribe to all the sessions.
