On Wednesday, March 31 four local business school deans will gather at George Mason University for a symposium on global education and what it means to today’s business schools.
Moderated by President and CEO of the Greater Washington Board of Trade, James Dinegar, panelists include:
- Ian Carter, president, global operations, Hilton Worldwide
- George Daly, dean, McDonough School of Business, Georgetown University
- Richard Durand, dean, Kogod School of Business, American University
- Jorge Haddock, dean, School of Management, George Mason University
- Walt Havenstein, chief executive officer, SAIC
- Susan Phillips, dean, School of Business, The George Washington University
Panelists will be challenged to answer questions such as how to help make higher education affordable, yet competitive in the changing global education market place; what steps can educational institutions take to fulfill the demand for management education; and what are the top three global challenges facing management education today?
“I look forward to an engaging and frank conversion with my fellow deans as to what the new economy means for us as educators of the next generation of global corporate leaders,” says Haddock. “Debating with them and with two outstanding business leaders of Fortune 500 companies means I’ll be able to shed a light on what I see as our greatest opportunity—restoring the public’s understanding of business and capitalism as a way to create a higher quality of life for everyone and to experience a better quality of life in our time. I believe that as business schools, we will collectively achieve this by instilling a heightened sense of personal and corporate social responsibility in our students and in our business partners. ”
The symposium is part of a day long celebration that includes a formal ceremony inaugurating Jorge Haddock as the sixth dean of Mason’s School of Management. More information about the day’s events can be found at: http://somdean.wordpress.com/.
