2 May 2013

Win a trip for three members of the winning team to the 2013 EFMD conference being held in St Petersburg from 30 September-2 October 2013!

If you're a student of today in your undergraduate management programme, what do you think your programme should look like by 2020 to prepare future students to be effective business leaders?

Assemble a team and produce a video that provides your prediction. Be creative - be more than a talking head. Create something highly engaging and persuasive that can be used today to help shape programs as they evolve.

Consider technology, experiential learning, globalisation, student teacher interaction, or anything else you think is relevant. Present your ideas to Programme Directors of top business schools from all around the world.
