About the Conference

The GMAC European Conference is designed for school professionals in admissions, marketing, recruitment, international affairs, and program management. This is a global forum exploring issues of increasing importance within a growing European graduate management education landscape. Whatever your role is, you will come away with new ideas that you can put to work immediately.

In addition to deep-dive plenary and topic-focused concurrent sessions, you will also enjoy networking time with industry colleagues over the two-day conference. Also, for those who are newer to GMAC or simply need a bit of a refresher we’ll have an optional, free GMAC Toolkit workshop after the main event.

This year we are very pleased to be hosting the conference in the exciting and vibrant city of London. Immersed in history and culture, London is a city with great imagination, ever evolving and embracing a multicultural identity that adds to its charm and prosperity.

To be held at London Business School’s tranquil campus near the beautiful Regent’s Park, you will spend two enjoyable days learning and sharing ideas with peers and colleagues during the conference and at our evening social events in and around this amazing city.


Registration will open soon.
