Opening Keynote: Strategic Shifts in Graduate Management Education

Wednesday | January 22 | 2014 | 2:15 pm - 3:30 PM
Las Olas I, II, III

Globalization, hyper-competition, technological innovation, entrepreneurship, sustainability, and business ethics are having a profound impact on both the theory and practice of management education. Because the past anchors our present and future actions, Dipak Jain will open his keynote address with a brief overview of global business as well as the development of management education over the last 100 years. Drawing on his many years as a global marketing scholar and academic leader, he will then go on to explore how today’s disruptive forces will influence three key areas: student quality; curriculum and research; and placement. Throughout his remarks, Dr. Jain will provide insight into his personal beliefs about how management institutions and their partners can create important new value for society by combining “performance with purpose.”
