2012 Global Symposia

Exploring the World of Student Expectations

 London| 4-5 October, 2012
 Singapore| 19-21 November, 2012

Your programmes must meet the expectations of myriad stakeholders, perhaps none more important than those of your students.  In October and November, the GMAC Global Symposia will help you gain a deeper understanding of today’s candidates and climate, focusing on two rapidly changing world regions: EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) and APAC (Asia-Pacific).

What You'll Learn
  • Which generational factors shape what today’s students want from your programmes?
  • What can leading authorities and GMAC data tell you about how global economies, politics, and cultures influence student expectations?
  • How can your school deliver on your promises to candidates, alumni, and talent-hungry corporations
  • And much more.

Why You Should Attend

  • You’ll gain information tailored to your school’s unique need for students who are realistic about what you offer (and fit smoothly in your classrooms); who are well prepared for good careers (and can please employers while boosting your school’s rankings); and who will be satisfied alumni (and ambassadors for your school).
  • You’ll come away with exclusive data and market intelligence you can put to work immediately. What you learn will enhance your programme’s success with future candidates, current students, alumni, and potential employers.
  • You’ll be exposed to a world of expertise all in one place. Each symposium gathers recognised experts from whom you can learn directly about the latest global trends, research, challenges, and opportunities. At the same time, you’ll share best practices and connect with peers in graduate management education worldwide.
  • You’ll enjoy the unique benefits of GMAC Global Symposia, designed to dive deeply into a vital topic relevant to you. Using an executive education format of one track only, you and your peers will address student expectations from multiple perspectives within the contexts of Europe and Asia Pacific. Global Symposia are brought to you by GMAC Professional Education & Training, dedicated to providing what you need to succeed at your job, expand your network, and meet your career goals.
