Accelerating Transformation

Business needs more from us. Students want more. Society demands more. How can we deliver to stakeholders today what we designed to deliver yesterday?Business education as we have known it is perishing. The classrooms of yesteryear are quickly evolving to keep pace with technology, while administrators seek new ways to reach more students across greater demographics than ever before possible. The once untouchable faculty models and financial strategies that defined academic institutions are also changing. But change is inevitable. Businesses are constantly reinventing themselves, through a reevaluation of meaning and a realignment of goals. Business schools, as the channel that delivers leaders of industry, must accordingly guide the way to change. To truly be change-makers, business schools must not only remain relevant but must define what is relevant—and what is necessary for global good.

At ICAM 2017, we invite you to be a part of accelerating the transformation of business education. Through a revitalized conception of the business education ecosystem, we confront disruptive factors, we welcome revolutionary thinking, and we work to advance the roles of business schools as catalysts for innovation, co-creators of knowledge, hubs of lifelong learning, leaders on leadership, and enablers of global prosperity.

Who Should Attend

Corporate representatives, deans, associate/assistant deans, international directors, program directors, department chairs, and faculty.
