2016 GMAC Leadership Conference

The 2016 GMAC Leadership Conference will explore how technology, demographic changes and globalization are affecting the future workforce and workplace, and what business schools are and should be doing to respond and remain competitive. Against this “Future of Work” backdrop, this year’s event, convening from January 19-22 in Miami, Florida, promises to educate and engage on a wide range of forward-thinking themes, including:

  • The role of soft skills in graduate management education curriculum

  • The ways adaptive technologies are changing the way we teach

  • What employers are looking for in tomorrow’s MBAs

You won’t want to miss the event’s kick-off keynote session featuring Thomas H. Davenport, President's Distinguished Professor of Information Technology and Management at Babson College. He is also co-founder of the International Institute for Analytics, a Fellow of the MIT Center for Digital Business, and Senior Advisor to Deloitte Analytics. Davenport, who teaches analytics and big data in executive programs at Babson, Harvard Business School, MIT Sloan School, and Boston University, pioneered the concept of “competing on analytics” and the idea of using information about your business environment as a competitive tool. He has written or edited numerous books and articles for Harvard Business Review, Sloan Management Review, The Financial Times, and many other publications, and also writes a weekly column for The Wall Street Journal’s Corporate Technology section.
