EFMD Advisory Seminars

EFMD Advisory Services assist members in the continuous quality improvement of their programmes, activities and governance.

EFMD Advisory Seminars are one-day meetings organised at the EFMD head office in Brussels, Belgium that brings together a maximum of 20 delegates of business schools and corporate members with the purpose of providing:

  • Information and knowledge on general quality issues as well as specific information on selected topics
  • A platform for learning from each other and networking

A typical meeting will have the following format:

  • Get-together dinner on the evening prior to the seminar
  • Next day:
    • Introduction by the moderator
    • Examples of good practice
    • Networking lunch
    • Case(s) analysis and Discussion

Seminars are interactive and include the intervention of an expert and presentation of a recent case study. As the seminars are limited to a maximum of 20 participants, the opportunity to share ideas, best practices and learn from colleagues and speakers is a key component to the seminar design.
