PMAC Online brings together professional services staff working in, and for, UK business schools. Taking place online this is an interactive, practical event that supports business school professional services teams through a series of engaging panel discussions, breakout sessions and professional development workshops.

Key themes for PMAC 2023 include:

Driving inclusion and improving diversity
How professional services staff can help their institutions to further embed the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion across all aspects of business school strategy. From the creation of diverse teams through inclusive recruitment practices; to the utilization of key EDI accreditations; to the evolution of support services for staff and students from underrepresented and disadvantaged backgrounds.

Sustainability and responsibility
How professional services staff are working with internal and external stakeholders to improve the sustainability credentials of a business schools’ physical assets; develop policies and strategies to balance carbon reduction targets with the need for staff to work and travel; and improve awareness of sustainability issues across staff and student communities.

Building effective and resilient teams
The opportunities for business schools to take advantage of new ways of working including flexible/hybrid working, and the 4-day week to rebuild teams and team spirit in the aftermath of the pandemic.

Supporting staff and student health and wellbeing
How professional services staff can contribute to formulating and implementing health and wellbeing strategies across their institutions; and the practical actions that can be taken to support staff and students through the cost of living crisis.

Future proofing the business school
The role that professional services staff play in helping their business schools create strong brand identities; achieve domestic and international student recruitment targets; deliver meaningful student outcomes and identify and take advantage of new opportunities in knowledge exchange and commercial activity.
