On Friday, September 25th from 7 – 8:30pm Beijing time, Peking University’s Guanghua School of Management and other members of EFMD’s global network from Asia, Europe, North America, and South America will host a virtual forum entitled “A Path Forward: Leveraging Change to Transform Business Education”. You can register at http://futureleaders.mikecrm.com/PqNJSej.

Last semester, we were all forced to find coping mechanisms to deal with uncertainty and rapid change. Yes, part of this was due to COVID, but there are also broader economic shifts, political shifts, technological shifts, and other factors contributing to the uncertain environment we all face. As we move beyond the stopgap measures we employed to keep our programs running in the Spring and Summer, this Fall semester marks an opportunity to consciously build new kinds of partnerships, integrate new technology into our programs, and adapt what we teach our students so they are equipped to lead through these challenges.

Deans and other leadership from schools with students in Guanghua’s “Future Leaders” International Undergraduate Double-Degree Program will share what they are doing to ensure the education we provide as business schools remains both relevant and impactful in the face of disruptive uncertainty and change. How are business models being adapted? What new skills do students need to learn and how should we teach them? How have the services being offered to students changed and what improvements have been made based on student feedback?

We invite you to join us for what promises to be an informative and practical discussion and look forward to “seeing you there”!
