GBSN Members are Invited to April’s Cross-Border Collab: Exploring Leadership and Innovation in Management Education

Few people have viewed management education—and shaped its development—from so many different perspectives and leadership roles as Joel Podolny. He went from being the Dean of the Yale School of Management (as well as a leading scholar) to becoming the founding Dean of Apple University, which he led for more than 12 years. And now he is the co-founder and CEO of Honor Education, which aims to “transform teaching and learning through collective engagement.”

Join this month’s Collab for an engaging conversation with Dr. Podolny about his experiences and vision for leadership and management development. Invite your colleagues, especially those who are leading learning innovation initiatives and executive education/lifelong learning.

GBSN Members can join this exclusive opportunity to ask questions like:

  • How can leaders in academia and industry collaborate more effectively to drive innovation in management education and leadership development?
  • What are the key challenges and opportunities in integrating technology and digital learning platforms into executive education and lifelong learning programs?
  • In what ways can organizations create a culture of continuous learning and development to nurture future leaders and adapt to changing business environments?
