EFMD GN ProfDev in partnership with Academ by RimaOne


The future of management education and research is digital. Data management therefore plays a central role in leading the modern business schools forward. Data management supports external compliance, accreditation, rankings, stakeholder accountability, strategising, benchmarking, risk management, internal management-by-objectives, portfolio performance measurement, assurance of learning, publishing and granting quality assurance more generally – a list that can easily be further extended. As a consequence, business schools (as well as their parent organisations) have to collect, process, analyse and maintain more data than ever before. This trend of institutional management becoming more data driven is likely to continue in the foreseeable future.

As data management is assuming a more strategic and central role in business school development, it also requires systematic senior management attention. This workshop will act as an enabler and platform for the further professionalisation of data management in business schools. It will provide an interactive learning environment and ample of networking opportunities to participants and fellow practitioners. Participants will develop an in-depth understanding of Smart Data Management in business schools and higher education context using an ecosystem perspective and they will be able to evaluate the positioning of their institution in the light of the basic principles and best practices of SDM.


Participants will:

• Gain an in-depth understanding of the general principles of smart data governance and learn how to operationalize them in institutional data management;

• Learn how to strengthen their institutional strategy and link it to data management strategy and data ecosystem;

• Share and learn from fellow practitioners on how to best develop a smart data governance framework to support the development of at their respective institutions;

• Develop security awareness by understanding the needs of current compliance and information security issues;

• Increase their knowledge of smart data management as a key contributor to sustainable quality assurance;

Target group:

The workshop is targeted at business school executives with strategic/managerial responsibility for data management involving data governance/strategy, data management and/or quality processes or parts thereof. Deans, Associate Deans (with data management in their brief), CIO and Heads of Accreditation will benefit from this workshop.
