The Impact Challenge

Target Group
Staff members responsible for strategy definition, quality management, company relations, stakeholder relations, communication ……

Seminar Objectives
Management education as a whole and business schools individually are being held to a much greater extent accountable for their impact on the world in which they operate. This seminar will be an opportunity for participants to think through the consequences of this challenge for their school or faculty. What are the key issues that arise within the pursuit of a school’s mission and the implementation of its strategy? What are the expectations of the principal stakeholders and how are they changing? Are people within the school aware of and responsive to the importance of this dimension? How well is the school reaching out to business and society? To what extent is it contributing to meaningful innovation?

The seminar is intended to help participants integrate impact awareness into strategic planning with particular focus on impact definition, measurement and interpretation.

The Seminar is offered in collaboration with the AACSB
