EFMD GN WORKSHOP: EFMD Activities Addressing Market Trends
As a network of business schools and enterprises, EFMD Global Network is dedicated to improving the quality of management education worldwide. The first part of the workshop will introduce participants to the various EFMD activities focused on strengthening the collaboration between business schools and the corporate world. These range from accreditation / certification (e.g. EQUIS, BSIS, CLIP) to project work, professional development and general community building. Discussions will highlight how these service offerings are capturing current market trends such as the rising importance assigned to relevance & impact of management education, the shift towards multidisciplinary thinking in knowledge generation and teaching (thereby e.g. bridging the gap to technology and design), as well as the progressive digitization of educational provision.
