Dean Lei welcomed educators and executives from across the U.S. to the Innovations in Graduate Business Education Conference

Conference highlights innovative thinking in graduate education

In September, Rutgers Business School brought together nearly 200 academics and leaders from industry for an Innovations in Graduate Business Education Conference. Over several days, executives and business school administrators from top universities in the nation discussed a range of issues that are influencing the development of curriculum, new programming, preparing business talent and what companies are looking for in new graduates. (For more about the conference, see (“Changing business world inspires discussions on industry connections, innovative curriculum.”)

To capture some of the thought leadership and ideas exchanged during the Innovations in Graduate Business Education Conference, Rutgers Business School made videos of participants from each of the panel discussions.
