Business Schools in Austere Times and the Future of Management Education

The Centre for Service Management (Loughborough University) and the Centre for Service Excellence (Edinburgh) are delighted to invite you to a joint research symposium ‘Business Schools in Austere Times’. It will be hosted at Loughborough University and will bring together a series of themed presentations by leading scholars across management disciplines from Europe and the UK to address why business schools (dis)function as they do. Rarely will you see so many academic leaders in one place at the same time: The presenters include business school Deans, University Vice Presidents and academics who continue to shape business schools and management education in universities.

The event is designed to join contemporary research on business schools with service management perspectives in order to confront the challenges of business schools in austere times. The event promises a lively debate and will illuminate some of the future challenges for business schools. 

The event is relevant to managers and senior managers who interface with business schools either through the skills and study they provide or through employing graduates from business degrees. It is also highly relevant for academics in business schools.

The event is free to attend and will take place on Monday 24th and Tuesday 25th June 2019. For further details and registration please contact Ruth Cufflin at R.Cufflin@lboro.ac.uk.
