  • Celia Moore, Director Corporate Citizenship and Corporate Affairs, IBM Europe Middle East Africa EMEA,IBM, UK
  B4. IESE Business School: Spontaneous learning in the firm: implications for the management profession and for management education
Aim: The unavoidable spontaneous learning that takes place as a result of human interactions in any firm operations at all levels generates what we call “footprints” in all persons involved. Such footprints can be positive or negative in the sense of leaving people better or worse prepared for future interactions and thus future firm performance in at least two dimensions, economic results and impact on their dignity. The second dimension has clear ethical implications for both the profession in general and for managers in particular, in the context of the firm mission and business model. Reflecting on these issues several ideas emerge that are relevant for management education, both from the perspective of program design and that of the educational process, with emphasis on the role of management professors.

16:45 – 18:00 Plenary IV
Architecture
Aim: We’ve been talking a lot about MOOCs and distance learning the last years, but what about the fundamental question about the design of lecture rooms? It is a very important question as the physical space will be there for about 50 years and the interior of the building it needs to be in alignment with pedagogic development. How does a well-designed learning space influence the learning of students?
