How are Business Schools driving digital transformation and skills development today?
To find out, AMBA & BGA will be joined by experts from leading online learning platform Coursera – as well as representatives from the business education community – for an interactive webinar for Business School leaders.
Our panel will explore how Business Schools can address the opportunities and challenges of digitalisation; and how they are ensuring students are equipped with the business skills needed by employers’ in the post-Covid-19 workplace.
