CEEMAN Know-How Webinars and Lounge Discussions
Our members have expressed a strong interest in learning not just about the description of a specific challenge or goal, but “how to” implement a solution, or “how to” start and continue the change process toward reaching that goal. We have responded with a successful launch of Know-How Webinars on topics of interest for management educators, as well as CEEMAN Lounge discussions. Lounge is a new platform to share and discuss some of the key questions management education is facing, bringing insights from our members and international experts. Below, you can find the descriptions and the recordings of our free online events.
