GBSN Members are Invited to January Cross-Border Collab: The Purpose of Business Schools with Julian Birkinshaw

GBSN is excited to kick off our 2023 Collab series with special guest Julian Birkinshaw, the Vice-Dean at the London Business School. Birkinshaw is also a Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship and the Academic Director of the Institute of Entrepreneurship and Private Capital. As an expert on innovation, entrepreneurship renewal in large corporations, Birkinshaw will join us to discuss the purpose of business schools in helping the world tackle its greatest challenges.

In his most recent Financial Times article, Birkinshaw explores ways business schools can recenter their educational approach to address the most pressing societal and environmental issues. In the January Collab, Birkinshaw will help GBSN Members explore how we can put his insights into practice. We will discuss questions like:

  • How can we reframe business education to provide our students with a better understanding of the role of business in society?
  • What opportunties will enhance our students problem solving skills to better prepare them to tackle complex societal problems?
  • How can the GBSN Network leverage its power to further the sustainability agenda of other organizations like the UN?
