The agenda for GBSN’s upcoming annual conference is filling up with some truly innovative speakers and fascinating topics all around the theme "Education, Employment and Entrepreneurship.”
We are thrilled to be featuring a Keynote Conversation with Patrick Awuah, founder of Ghana’s Ashesi University at the GBSN Annual Conference in Tunis this June. Awuah received his MBA from GBSN Member Haas Business School at UC Berkeley and went on to work at Microsoft.
After a decade there, he returned to Ghana with a mission to educate young people in critical thinking and ethical service. He founded Ashesi University in 2002 with the goal of educating Africa’s next generation of leaders. Watch Awuah’s TED talk to learn more about his inspiration and dedication.
This year’s conference will be full of opportunities to share ideas and experiences with colleagues from around the world. We’re breaking down barriers between speakers and participants. We are engaging all who attend in an in-depth conversation about business education, now and in the future, and its role in addressing the devastating lack of employment opportunity for young people in the developing world.
- Discussion sessions during the conference will include topics such as:
- Promoting Models of Inclusiveness in Agribusiness
- Peace Through Commerce: Business Innovations as a Pillar of Peace
- Employing MOOCs and Flipped Classrooms Effectively
- The Power of Mobile Technology: Scaling Entrepreneurship Training
- Building a Collaborative Model to Train PhDs Across Borders
As always, the conference will be a great forum to network, identify trends and get new ideas for your programs. But we look forward to going even further by fostering collaborative thinking to come up with interesting new ways to design quality business education that is relevant and accessible to the young entrepreneurs and aspiring professionals that hold so much promise for the developing world.
