Woxsen University’s National Symposium: Reimagining Global Education in Business Schools

It gives us immense pleasure to invite you to an International Symposium “Reimagining Global Education in Business Schools” being organized by Woxsen University in association with ETS, the leading provider of educational testing and assessments for GRE and TOEFL examinations. This event shall be broadcasted live on the 24th of January, 2022 (Monday) on Zoom from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM Indian Standard Time (IST).

Brief Background

Creating global citizens and leaders from today’s youth calls for innovative curricula that support new ways of teaching and learning. These curricula must also provide students with effective opportunities to develop the dispositions, knowledge, and capabilities to understand the world in which they live, to make sense of the ways globalization shapes their lives, and to be good stewards of the world’s resources.

These are momentous and exciting times for business education! The current operating landscape faced by many business schools globally is one defined by an increasingly dynamic range of opportunity, uncertainty and risk. One of the challenges for higher education in the current era is the strategic need to adapt to an external environment that is changing much more rapidly and unpredictably than that of the higher education sector itself.

Given the dynamically changing world around us, it is imperative for business schools to evaluate traditional models and processes that intentionally or inadvertently support operating in academic isolation. Shifts in market demand for how business education is delivered is driving business education to innovate and to “unpack” traditional full-time degree programs. This suggests that, in addition to traditional degree offerings, business schools increasingly may provide shorter, flexible, modularized, and just-in-time educational experiences that support professionals throughout all stages of their careers.

To help understand the changing landscape, we have invited the ETS members for sharing their insights.

It’s time to herald a new standard in business education!
