EFMD Annual Meeting

On Sunday 9 June our new Brussels campus hosted the opening diner of the Annual EFMD Conference which brought close to 500 deans and business school administrators together. The conference which took place on Monday and Tuesday dealt with the evolution and impact of management education.

Among the many speakers were David Wilson, President and CEO of GMAC who commented on the trends toward specialised masters and the pressure on the full-time mba, Soumitra Dutta, Dean of Cornell speaking on business school challenges to adapt to the changing expectations, and Howard Lurie, Vice-president of edX, the MOOC ( Massive Open Online Courses) founded by Harvard and MIT, explaining the growth and strategy of the online education providers. Besides hosting the participants at our new campus, our Dean, Philippe Haspeslagh, was the Conference Chair.
