AMBITION Global Special - Reflections from Dubai

AMBITION 2017 - Global Special Edition SupplementReflections from Dubai: an exclusive round up of highlights from AMBA’s 2017 Global Conference

This special edition of AMBITION is packed with highlights from AMBA's 50th Anniversary Global Deans and Directors Conference in Dubai, UAE.

Deans from six continents shared their insights and we unveiled exclusive interviews with His Excellency Peter Thomson, President of the UN General Assembly and Indra Nooyi, Chairman and Chief Executive of Pepsico, arguably the world's most high-profile female CEO.

Our focus was on the future of the MBA; evolving MBA programmes to reflect the needs of employers; entrepreneurship; globalisation; and digital learning. It's vital that responsible management is at the core of the MBA programme, so you'll see this theme as a gold thread throughout our conference content.
