"Millennial Job Challenge, How B-schools could respond with Accreditation" is the theme of the current year's annual Conference theme. The theme has been chosen to focus on the urgent need for the B-schools to rethink their curriculum and pedagogy to prepare their student leaders for an uncertain VUCA World that describes the volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity – terms that reflect our increasingly unstable and rapidly changing business world.
We hope to offer a series of presentations from the Accreditation agencies reflecting the theme as also from the thought leaders who would be addressing the conference from academia and business.
The B-schools more than ever are going to face the biggest existential challenge with the rapid changes taking place in the businesses that traditionally recruited at the campuses. Cloud computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, 3 D Printing, robotics, space travel, bio-engineering, climate change and such other are pushing the envelope to create newer jobs but to get there the graduates need to be reequipped with newer tools and fresh upbeat attitude. By 2030, automation will cut jobs by 29% while contributing as little as 13% to job creation, according to Forrester's Future of Work report.
Accreditation may hold the key: The global accreditation agencies by design constantly challenge the member schools based on their expert learning from around the world. Accreditation being a moving target, there is a constant pressure to learn from the peers. AACSB's BizEd magazine quoted "As organizations rely more on data to drive their decisions, they’re setting the expectation that all students, regardless of specialization, will know how to turn data into solutions for business and society. And this expectation is shaping the business curriculum in pervasive and permanent ways"
who will be presenting: The world's leaders in accreditation AACSB, EFMD, AMBA, ACBSP and IACBE along with SAQS and ATHEA have been presenting at our Advocacy events and annual conference for over a decade. Also we would expect Industry leadership and academia represented by leading associations to be participating.
