EFMD Conference for Deans & Directors General

The 2023 Deans Conference will take place onsite on 30-31 January after two years of being online. We look forward to connecting again with the community which is open, honest, and a trusted forum to delve into daily challenges and overall trends.

We're thrilled to meet in person on 30-31 January at IE Business School in Madrid, Spain, for the first EFMD Conference for Deans and Directors General since 2020! We chose a timely topic in consultation with the committee members: 
 What if…? Reimagining the role of business schools in 2030 
Reimagining the role of business schools and challenging our assumptions of the future appear to be the way forward. What we consider normal today and the expectations we create are likely to be obsolete in a few years, as we have recently witnessed. Because we have no idea what the world will look like in eight years, let alone eight weeks, everything revolves around the 'What if...'
Participants will be able to speculate on and discuss topics such as: 
  • What if internationalisation ceased to exist as we know it? 
  • What if purpose was the first criterion for your research agenda? 
  • What if business schools address the climate emergency ‘properly’? 
  • What if rankings embraced all relevant stakeholders? 
  • A new global order: macro geopolitical and geoeconomic trends 
  • How does technology impact the future workplace?
This event is only open to those in business schools and centres who have chief executive officer (institutional top management) responsibility and authority. Learn more and register.
