Special Session Executive Education - 8 March

The special session Executive Education will be held on March 8 from 2 until 4 pm in ALMA 12.

Beyond journals: executive education matters

Publicly owned universities with a large business education faculty have often paid little attention to executive education. Executive education has largely been the domain of privately owned institutions, while publicly owned universities either ignored it altogether or managed it poorly. Instead, public university administrators have typically incentivised research output over other activities. Lacking success stories, young faculty have often seen executive education as a distraction from their precious research time or at best as an erratic and intellectually less inspiring source of institutional and personal income.

Winfried Ruigrok (NL) is a Professor of International Management and the Dean of the Executive School of Management, Technology and Law, University of St.Gallen (Switzerland).

ABRI is pleased to invite you to the annual ABRI PhD Day that will take place on March 20, 2018.

This year’s PhD Day features eight ABRI PhD candidates from different disciplines, who are now halfway their PhD trajectories. During this event, they will present their work to an audience of faculty members, fellow PhD students, and a panel of selected reviewers.
This will be a great occasion to celebrate the progress that these PhD candidates have made so far, to give feedback on their work in progress, and to strengthen our multidisciplinary research community.

We hope to see you at our special day on March 20, 2018, in room HG 9A-29 (main room) and HG 9A-33 (breakout sessions), between 09:30-13:20.

To register for a half- or full-day participation, please send an email to (graduateschool.abri@vu.nl) latest on Friday, March 16.
