Business Schools and their place in Society



Business Schools impact on their local economy and society as developers of talent and skills, providers of higher education, researchers on key issues, and enablers of business to be more competitive. This means that they need to align with their stakeholders needs and challenges. To do so effectively requires the development of a strategic vision, strong relationships and networks, and a mutual recognition of the contribution that each can make.

Is your business school leveraging its impact on business and society?  This webinar explores the practicalities of developing a strategic vision, developing capabilities and leveraging connections.
