Overview

The EFMD Higher Education Research Conference, organized by the EFMD - The Management Development Network will take place from 3rd June to the 4th June 2015 at the University of Oxford in Oxford, United Kingdom. Keynote Speakers are Jeffrey Pfeffer, Alis Oanceaand Mats Alvesson.

The conference will cover areas like What are the challenges to business schools and universities in the contemporary world and how are those institutions responding to those challenges and with what further consequences for the various stakeholders? And what do we know historically about such cycles of challenge, response and consequence and are there any parallels with the global world of higher education we experience today.

The subject of the conference relates to our field of inquiry, dealing inter alia with higher education institutions respondance to the demands of multiple stakeholders.

Context

Since 2012, EFMD is engaging in a community-building effort to encourage research on business schools and their role in higher education. The Annual EFMD Higher Education Research Conference is designed as an anchor event of this initiative. It serves as a platform to facilitate the cross-fertilization of research by scholars from management, higher education as well as other fields. The forthcoming conference in Oxford will be the 4th such conference. Previous events have been hosted by The Lorange Institute in Switzerland (2012), Paris-Dauphine University in France (2013), and Stockholm Business School, Stockholm University in Sweden (2014).
