Safe gathering
NEW VIDEO UPDATE: EMBAC Executive Director Michael Desiderio talks about the value and virtues of a virtual conference for this year.

Much to offer

Join your colleagues as EMBAC transforms its 2020 conference into a virtual offering for EMBA Programs worldwide to share best practices, and, yes, to network at the industry event of the year. Consider the benefits:

With the sweeping industry changes as a result of COVID-19, it’s more important than ever to learn from one another

Content will feature both plenary and concurrent sessions that focus on issues of key importance to the industry

Most sessions will be recorded for participants, so no need to worry about missing a session that you wanted to attend

New reduced pricing encourages schools to pay once and gather many: The $300 per school registration fee gives access for an unlimited number of participants from the registered school

AND, of course, the online conference will include opportunities for connecting with colleagues from throughout the world and discussing changes, trends, and future plans

Conference RFP: Share your stories

Because so much has changed since the call for concurrent session proposals opened in January, EMBAC has decided to REOPEN the process.

We are encouraging members to submit proposals to present a concurrent session, especially those that look at the impact of COVID-19. What adaptations worked best for you? How are you preparing for different scenarios? What shifts do you think offer long-term benefits?

Share with members changes to your programs, services, and your plans for the future. Submit a proposal by June 10, 2020. For access to the RFP instructions and form, visit your member portal.

Great value

“Our EMBA team has attended the Executive MBA Council conference for more than 15 years, and we place great value on the opportunity to connect with our fellow EMBA colleagues. We send two to four representatives each year so that we can spread ourselves across the many excellent sessions, and have presented as well. We come back each year energized and full of fresh ideas on how we can make our 42-year-old program stronger than ever. The council fosters a shared vision and drive for excellence, and the collegiality we feel is simply outstanding.”
