Reflecting on the significant challenges that ABDC member business schools have faced this year, the Executive Committee has assembled a meeting programme to help members address:
i. the wellbeing impacts of Covid-19; and
ii. the future of business schools, and the role that Australian business schools play in that future.
The meeting will be held via videoconference on 6 November, 11am to 2pm (Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra).
