A Market-Driven Approach to
Designing a Responsive MBA Curriculum
How do MBA faculty, academic and program directors create and implement an innovative curriculum that meets the needs of their constituents?

Join us for the 2017 MBA Roundtable Annual Curricular Innovation Symposium where we will delve deeper into the challenge of using inputs from the corporate community to drive curriculum change and increased student satisfaction and success.

How do you go about gathering that research? Who are your key constituents? How do you turn that feedback into a responsive and evolving curriculum? These are just a few of the proposed topics we will discuss in our Annual Curricular Innovation Symposium. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet, discuss and network with your fellow MBA program leaders around this challenging and relevant topic.

Dates:  October 5 -6, 2017

Location:  Fox School of Business, Temple University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Who should attend:  Faculty, Academic Directors, Program Directors – Decisionmakers who have direct impact on curriculum design, review and implementation, as well as external relations leadership who interact with senior decision makers on hiring/placing MBA graduates.

Online MBA Conference:  As an exciting part of the 2017 Symposium, the MBA Roundtable is pleased to be delivering our symposium in partnership with the Fox School as they are also hosting the inaugural Online MBA Consortium conference, which will take place directly before the MBA Roundtable Symposium (October 4-6, 2017).  The Online MBA Consortium formed in 2015 and is run by leaders at the top online MBA programs in the nation.  We are excited to have the Fox School, home to the #1 Online MBA program for the past three years, as our host.  The two events are being planned in conjunction to create opportunities for crossover learning and networking opportunities.   Special rates are available to those attending both events.
