This year’s Annual Conference will celebrate the strength, nimbleness and resilience of the UK’s business school community.
Notions of cohesion and inclusivity are being greatly strained by the social, economic and political challenges that we are currently facing. Join Deans and senior leaders on 9 and 10 November in London, where will be much to discuss, many relationships to be rekindled, and new networks to be developed.
It is an opportunity to explore what the future holds for UK business schools, and consider what we want the new normal to be beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.
Programme & Speakers
COVID-19 has reshaped our economic prospects and the fabric of society. This year’s programme explores the role of business schools in this new world; and how we can best serve our students, parent institutions, business partners and society at large.
The 2020 programme is in development and will be released in the coming months. Key themes include:
The changing notions of ‘global’ and ‘local’
How the notions and practicalities of being ‘Global’ and being ‘Local’ are changing and what this means for student recruitment, teaching, research, and business engagement.
Meeting students expectations
How we can provide our students with a meaningful education and the valuable ‘UK university experience’ that sets our sector apart from other education providers.
Equality, diversity and inclusion
How we can engender and facilitate honest conversations with staff and students about race and improve our Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion practices.
Supporting UK society & business
How business schools can help the UK weather the recession and contribute to the ‘public good’ through reskilling/upskilling programmes, small business support, innovative research and in other ways.
Optimising our environment
How we optimise the use of space in our buildings and the new ways of monetising our physical assets.
Business school leadership in the 2020’s
How we can offer authentic leadership to our teams, support staff wellbeing and provide colleagues with appropriate development opportunities at a time when so many of us are operating outside of our comfort zones.
