Friday, April 28th | New York, NY

Join us to hear the winning team of our International MBA Case Competition present live. The event will also feature a panel discussion with senior leaders from IBM, BNY Mellon and the Yale School of Management on the roles of business and higher education in driving societal change.

Ideas Worth Teaching  is a tightly curated, weekly email for business school faculty to prompt new conversations in the classroom about the relationships between corporations, capital markets, and the public good. Its intent is to provide "drag and drop" functionality - allowing faculty to easily use the articles, cases and other teaching materials that we will be sharing in their class discussions.
