AMBA & BGA will be hosting a series of events in India, aimed at facilitating discussions that support the growth of Business School professionals in local markets.
In an age dominated by technological innovation, Business Schools are facing increasing challenges in educating a workforce fit for tomorrow’s needs. Arguments have been made that Business Schools and Universities are too slow to adapt to changing needs, and are becoming increasingly irrelevant in a market where online education providers are providing certificates and degrees at a faster and sometimes more efficient way.
The Business Graduates Association, in collaboration with SEAA Trust New Delhi, will be hosting a roadshow in India, specifically dedicated towards identifying what Business Schools need to know for the coming years, and how BGA’s membership and accreditation services can upgrade Business Schools to meet and surpass industry needs. Join us as we bring experts who will present on industry trends, BGA membership and accreditation, the potential embedded into the Indian education industry, and much more.
