Professional development for business school faculty


CAPRI, 17 – 23 JUNE, 2019

Professional development for business school faculty
Pressures on schools to prove their economic and social worth intensify, while others argue that they should differentiate their missions, as some are doing or generally re-orientate themselves to future challenges and opportunities. The ‘Future of the Business School’ programme addresses the professional development of management academics and scholars as they take on significant management/leadership roles. In many cases this will be a first step to becoming future leaders in the sector.
Importantly, participants will work to identify and think about creating current and future alternatives for their schools, and for their community of scholarship. Particular content will derive from faculty expertise, and participant/ sponsor priorities for example  strategy, staff and student recruitment and selection, career development, equality and diversity, internationalization, and work life balance.
Presented By:University of Naples Federico II
The course is aimed at researchers that are already early career faculty members (ECR).
Participants will benefit from wider international exposure and improve their chances of promotions in their own School or Department. Topics covered include:

  • intra-school organizational processes, curriculaand research priorities
  •  differing national and international contexts of business schools
  • transnational actors –  AACSB/EQUIS/AMBA, publishers, rankers.
Admission Criteria
Admission will be on a competitive basis. About 20 participants will be selected. Participants may self-nominate or be ‘spotted’ as beneficiaries by line managers/mentors.
