Business Education Jam: Global Conversations
The Jam has been recognized as an important contribution to thinking about the future evolution and innovation in management education. The initial report, Reimagining Business Education: A World of Ideas, was utilized globally by business schools to inform how they might advance their own institutions and innovation efforts. Subsequently, in 2016, the book Reimagining Business Education: Insights and Actions from the Business Education Jam explored more deeply the issues and ideas advanced by the Jam.
Since the Jam took place in late 2014, business education has only faced additional challenges – enrollment pressures are forcing program changes, alternative education platforms are gaining in reputation and participants, and skills required by employers are increasingly disconnected from traditional business education.
But these challenges are not one size fits all. To further advance business education we need a comprehensive dialogue that recognizes the critical regional challenges the global economy is facing.
It’s time to spark this next conversation.
A New Platform For Reimagining Business Education
Moving beyond the initial success of the Business Education Jam, a new platform has emerged to heighten the level of business school and industry engagement and close the skills gap. Business Education Jam 2.0, the Global Conversations, is bringing together schools to directly engage with industry and public policy leaders in distinctive regions of the world, advancing new ideas and insights, and subsequently bringing those ideas together in a global symposium in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, on November 11th-12th, 2019.
