Shaping the Future of Business Education
Business is a rapidly transforming space, and it is important that the educators of future business leaders not only keep pace but also steer the course in this ever-changing environment. Further, our leadership responsibility extends beyond our students and corporate partners to include the under-served communities which must share in business success.
At Rutgers Business School, we seek to accomplish this by hosting conferences where business school leaders can develop and share methods that foster in business school students the skills necessary to be personally successful and contribute to the advancement of business and the betterment of the communities in which they live and work.
