This year’s EdTech seminar, hosted by CEEMAN at the IEDC-Bled School of Management during October 15-18, took more than a dozen professors, program directors and administrators from Europe, Russia, and the United States on a dizzying exploration of graduate management education in the throes of disruption and change. This is a place where micro-masters replace traditional two-year MBA programs, where gamification supplants conventional lectures and tests, and terms like “virality, badges, block chain, uplinking, digital learning, playability, chunking, and grinding” are the nomenclature of the day.

The world in which real managers live is becoming increasingly complex and challenging as technological change accelerates, digitalization and globalization upend one market after another, and responsibilities "beyond the bottom line" multiply. However, even though rumblings of dissatisfaction with management education and research have been occurring for the last 20 or so years, the majority of management development institutions, influenced by various external and internal forces, still have not been able to shift their focus from scientific research to impactful teaching, from disciplinary approach in their curriculum to holistic and cross-disciplinary program design, or from academic peer recognition to stronger bridge building to the business community. A consensus seems to be emerging around the world that a change of course in management development is long overdue and increasingly imperative.

CEEMAN is characterized by diversity, and our member institutions are continuously going through changes caused by the development of the institution as such and/or by the fast changing environment. There is vast collective and individual expertise within the network, and many issues of common interest that deans from our member institutions could share with each other. Partially, we enable this exchange through our conferences and other events. CEEMAN IQA accreditation system helps institutions develop in a more structured and formal way, addressing all aspects of institutional performance. However, often more individual support is needed and can be especially of great help for new generations of institutional leaders.
