EFMD with the support of the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), has great pleasure in inviting you and your business school to attend the 2013 EFMD MBA Conference that will be hosted by IMD in Lausanne, Switzerland from the 17-19 of March.
The conference will explore the role of the Programme Director under the theme “Leading the MBA: The Good, the Bad & the Ugly” and will include a tailor made case "The MBA Director’s Dilemma” that will address some of the key challenges encountered by Programme Directors.
The conference will be Chaired by Giulio Toscani, Director of the MBA Programme at EADA, Spain. The event brings together the global community of MBA directors (full-time, part-time, distance learning or executive) to share and exchange ideas whilst providing practical tools and examples that are applicable in day-to-day life. It also offers a great networking opportunity to collaborate internationally and build your own network of MBA contacts around the world. If you are involved in leading an MBA programme this is a key annual event that you must attend so please register now to join peers from: IMD, esmt, EADA, LBS, Bocconi, BI, Lancaster and more.
