Events and Learning Opportunities

Get ahead in your career, expand your network, and share industry knowledge.

Virtual Convening

As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 environment, GMAC is committed to supporting you, the graduate management education community, in these unpredictable times. 

We launched a series of online discussions at the beginning of April, and based on your responses, are offering another set to continue the conversations. Based on your feedback, these forums will be for you, by you – we will not have panelists during the forums, rather the time will be dedicated to you discussing and problem solving with your peers to share best practices, gain insights and new ideas to navigate this new normal. We want this discussion to be of value to you! We will organize the discussion groups by roles and responsibilities.  Please ensure you include your title and role in the registration form. Space is limited to 200 participants per meeting, please register at your earliest convenience. We look forward to you joining the conversation.
