Annual Symposium

The MBA Roundtable organizes an annual curriculum symposium to explore in-depth a specific trend or topic related to curricular or co-curricular strategy, design, or delivery.

Symposia are hosted by an MBAR member school and the agenda is developed by an Advisory Committee composed of member school and affiliate sponsor representatives. In addition to expert led presentations and panels, the Symposia agenda is designed specifically for participants to discuss issues, exchange ideas, and cultivate networks.
