UK Business and Management Education – Policy Matters
2013 Series kindly supported by:
The Association of Business Schools (ABS) launched its new Policy Network in 2012 incorporating a series of lively policy roundtable discussions focusing on the following themes: Globalisation, The Challenge of Economic Regeneration, The Challenge of the Reformed Student Market Place and Sector Regulation.
This move was been welcomed by The Universities and Science Minister David Willetts who said:
"UK business schools are undoubtedly an important part of the HE agenda. Collectively, they provide business and management education for over 250,000 students a year and business and management is the fastest growing subject. The HE landscape is changing and I congratulate business schools for getting together to look at how they can be more nimble, continue to deliver world class education and ensure that UK programmes are considered by all students as an attractive option.
"I welcome this move by the Association to crystallise current thinking and take policy matters forward in a positive and meaningful manner."
The 2013 series will concentrate on the theme: Is it possible to balance student demands with business needs?
Full details of the 2013 meetings can be found *here*
The first rounds in 2012 focused on The Challenges of Globalisation:
UK Govt Visa Changes; International Campuses; International Accreditation; Competition over Mobile Faculty; International league tables), the session was led by Edward Acton, Vice-Chancellor, University of East Anglia and Pat Killingley, Director of Higher Education, British Council.
