EFMD, Babson & Robins School of Business Launch Vision 2020 Video Contest for Undergraduate Students

Calling all undergraduates - we want your ideas, your story and your vision on how an undergraduate programme should look for the starting class of 2020.

    BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, April 23, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Help us shape the future of the undergraduate curriculum and business schools experience? Multi-campus, continent, language? Do you really need more soft skills? Are you ready for work? Is the workplace ready for you? Is it even worth going to business school? What is missing from your current programme? If you were the Dean for a day and could make changes what would they be?

What do you think your programme should look like by 2020 to prepare future students to be effective business leaders? Assemble a team and produce a video that provides your prediction. Be creative--be more than a talking head. Create something highly engaging and persuasive that can be used today to help shape programs as they evolve. Consider: technology, experiential learning, globalization, student teacher interaction, or anything else you think is relevant.

We are asking undergraduates all over the world to share a short 3-5 minute video on how they would like to see the Undergraduate experience by 2020. The winning team (upto 3 members) will be invited to the EFMD Annual Undergraduate Conference that will take place at the St Petersburg Graduate School of Management, St Petersburg, Russia to share their ideas with a network of undergraduate programme directors who are part of the EFMD community of business schools.

Full details on how to take part can be found at EFMD Vision 2020. Please feel free to share this with colleagues, undergraduate students and programme directors.
