Public initiatives, such as the European Universities initiative, and private ones, such as CEMS, are paving the way for both pan-European and global degrees. This approach, designed to offer global and flexible programmes across institutions in multiple countries, is taking shape in many exciting forms.
This workshop will invite business school leaders who will share their experiences in building both programmes and partnerships with other institutions, the challenges and results of these initiatives, and ultimately how they see the management education industry will develop in relation to these initiatives in Europe and beyond.
The workshop will include several opportunities for attendees to share their experiences and thoughts, as well as network with other business school professionals from the AMBA & BGA network. The workshop is designed for senior and middle managers at business schools who are heavily involved in partnerships and internationalisation.
Explore insights and reflections from European business school professionals on the 2023 AMBA & BGA European Capacity Building Workshop in Berlin. Discover its significance and impact on business education in Europe through interviews with key delegates.
