“Intersections of Business Education and Economic Development,” the 2017 GBSN Conference in Washington D.C., will focus on the innovative and interdisciplinary ways business schools are collaborating with academia, businesses, NGOs and the public sector to advance economic development and expand opportunities.
Conference participants will examine the role business schools play in economic and social development, and assess the evolution of education in the face of recent world events, discussing questions such as:
How have Business Schools integrated social and environmental issues into their curriculums?
What are the cross-sectorial initiatives within business education that drive or reinforce economic development?
How are schools responding to fears of the perceived impact of globalization?
Sessions at the GBSN Conference will address these questions and many more, highlighting opportunities and challenges in the areas of the five sub-themes:
Focusing on inter-academic collaboration and integrated approaches to business education that foster stronger technical skills and broader perspectives in graduates.
2. Public Private Partnerships (PPPs)

The growing demand for socially-responsible and purposeful investing can no longer be ignored or filed under ‘compliance’. Impact investing is on the rise, whether it be driven by the ultra-wealthy or demanded by stakeholders of the world’s biggest pension funds. If you are not impact-focused, you are not investor-focused.
