The Business of Business Schools: International, Innovative, Involved, Impact #ABS13
25 Nov 2013
What businesses will your business school be in five years from now? Business Schools are in a number of businesses - teaching students, teaching management, research, professional education, business engagement, international markets, teaching innovation, local and regional business development and many more.  Many of these are critical not only to the success of the business school but often a wider university. The conference will address full range of challenges facing Business Schools and look at how the role of business schools and management education might change over the coming years. A strategy and operations management event for the leaders and managers of business schools. A challenging event for the teaching and research leaders in business education. A thought provoking conference for business school leaders and stakeholders facing a future of fast moving change.  Business Schools are complex education, management, training, and research centers with a strong connection locally regionally and internationally, facing some of the greatest pressures of change in post school education. What businesses are business schools in?  It is clear from government reports, ABS reports, new initiatives and new money that business schools need to have the ability to function at different levels, with different products in different management and education markets at home and abroad. But can many sustain that range or is it time to specialise, regionalise, internationalise? And business schools are not going to get the market to themselves.  Matched funding will have to be won; new players are entering the market, such as management consultancies and education publishers.  This event will hear presentations and discussion on the full range of forces pressing on business schools to provide an intense snapshot for business school planning and strategy.
