Want to find out how business education will be disrupted in Asia? Or get the latest on trends shaking up the business school model? The head on down to the Business Education Jam: Southeast Asia 2018 at Singapore Management University on 28 August. Hosted by the Lee Kong Chian School of Business, the Jam brings together regional leaders and academics to explore how business education will be disrupted with changes in technology, globalisation and employer expectations.
Here are the four top reasons why you should be part of the conversation:
- Tell us what you want from your business education
The Jam is a convergence of ideas, concepts, and collaborations designed to spark the next wave of business education innovation. Be part of the wave of change by contributing your opinions, findings and thoughts in-event or via comments in real time on the LKCSB Facebook page. That’s not all, you can also vote for the winning team in an industry-versus-academia debate on the disruption of the traditional model of business education in Asia that will be taking place on the day of the Jam.
- Engage with employers, thought leaders, faculty, students and alumni from around the region
Think of the Jam as a regional brainstorm that brings together industry and academic movers and shakers in a unique symposium. Participants get in on the action in roundtable discussions moderated by eminent faculty or CEOs of multi-national companies, including our very own Dean of LKCSB, Gerry George.
- Decide if business school is for you
With much of the world’s innovation and growth taking place right now in Asia, business schools in the region are also breaking out of the traditional mold of business education to anticipate changing skills needs.If you’ve wondered whether a business education is still relevant in today’s tech-centric climate; or if the pursuit of a business degree is only for those with strictly corporate ambitions, the Business Jam is the right place for you to address those questions and weigh-in on the future of business education.
