Look to the Future at the 2007 Annual Industry Conference

Starting with Hamel’s remarks, this year’s Annual Industry Conference will look into the future of graduate management education, with the theme “Reach Beyond the Horizon.” Under that umbrella, says meeting chair Rose Martinelli, the conference offers participants a rare chance to “step back, take stock of what we’re doing, take our heads out of the trenches for a minute, and plan for the future.”

Conferees will also hear from keynote speaker Alison Levine, leader of the first U.S women’s climb of Mount Everest, whose 18-year business career encompasses healthcare, technology, and finance. Concurrent sessions throughout the conference will explore ways to recruit and serve more women and international students, curriculum development, and several dimensions of financial aid, marketing, and a dozen other timely topics.

Martinelli, the associate dean for student recruitment and admissions at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business, worked for more than two decades in the conference host city, Philadelphia, and thinks attendees will enjoy the location. She adds that the meeting promises to be a good chance to network—and maybe pick up a new idea or two.

The City of Brotherly Love rolls out the red carpet for graduate management educators this June 14–16. Registration has closed, but please visit to learn more or send an email to to add your name to the wait list (include your name, title, university, and telephone number).
