Join A Global Brainstorm Envisioning the Future of Business Education

The world is rapidly changing and so is the role of business education. To envision its future, there must be a transformative conversation with broad participation: business schools, scholars, faculty, students, employers, executives, and thought leaders.

As a catalyst for innovative solutions and the international promotion of excellence in management development, EFMD is pleased to be a collaborator as Boston University School of Management and leading sponsors launch the Business Education Jam: Envisioning the Future.

This is not the usual one-way panel discussion. It is a worldwide brainstorm like never before and we need you to participate. A 60-hour virtual event occurring from September 30 – October 2, 2014, the Jam is unprecedented in the history of higher education.

Powered by innovative IBM technology, a “Jam” is a large-scale, collaborative online event that drives creativity and probing thought. World-renowned guests will join all Jam participants to open a new dialogue that will build a stronger connection between academia and industry, bolstering the growth and development of business education and businesses alike.

As an EFMD member, you now have the opportunity to view initial Jam content and sign up to receive advanced notice of registration. The Jam is free to participate and will enable massive crowdsourcing of ideas and thoughtful input from all stakeholders: faculty, deans, and administrators, company executives and hiring managers, students and graduates, and anyone who cares about business and business education.
