Alliance/PRME event: Reimagining Management Education in Rising Economies

The Alliance of Management Development Associations in Rising Economies and PRME – Principles for Responsible Management Education invite you to join the discussion about how business schools in rising economies can contribute to rebalancing business sustainability and reimagining management education.

We established the Alliance to support the management schools from rising economies – which share similar values, challenges, and often have great innovative solutions to offer to the world, especially in the area of sustainability. At the session, co-moderated by Danica Purg and Mette Morsing, we will discuss how business schools in rising economies can contribute to rebalancing sustainability and reimagining management education in the post-covid world.
We will hear about best practices from rising economies, challenges and opportunities the business schools are facing in pushing the responsible management education priorities – and also encourage you to contribute with sharing your own experience, suggestions, and insights through active participation with comments and questions during the session.

The event will take place online (Zoom) on 27 January 2021 at 15:00 - 16:30 CET / 9:00 – 10:30 EST.
