BUSINESS EDUCATION AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
A Project for Belarus

February 23rd, 2015

Anderson School of Management Conference Room 2082

How does higher education create a successful contribution to the economic development of the communities we serve?

Join us for a roundtable discussion with policy makers, academic leaders, and entrepreneurs from the nation of Belarus.  We will discuss several of the following issues:

·         Explore models of business education in the U.S.;
·         Learn about the process of accreditation in U.S. higher education, particularly specialized accreditation for business programs; 
·         Examine the role of federal and state government in regulating higher education;
·         Gain a broader understanding of the role of alumni networks for career opportunities, fundraising, and general institutional support;
·         Explore developments in distance education, executive MBA programs, and models of international institutional cooperation; and
·         Examine the role of public-private partnerships, private investment, and fundraising to continuously modernize MBA programs.


In order to facilitate this discussion, we will begin by presenting our work through IBSG and we will have students share experiences they believe have made their education connect meaningfully to their career growth.  What is the value of “schooling” vs. “education”?
