AMBA & BGA Festival of Excellence – Business Schools
27-28 January 2021

The AMBA & BGA Festival of Excellence is a unique and inspirational event that will feature best practice and innovation in light of mounting global challenges from across the AMBA & BGA Network of Business Schools, with a series of virtual interactive sessions, drawing on expertise from a world-class group of thinkers, practitioners and speakers.

The Festival will showcase the innovation of Business Schools, demonstrating the achievements of the network and inspiring others to achieve excellence in the face of global volatility, acting as a celebration of achievement and highlighting new work and fresh ideas for the year ahead.

In addition, speakers representing the corporate world, will share their own innovations and discuss how these can shape the business education environment.

The theme will be around moving forward in a post-Covid ‘new normal’ with an onus on forward thinking, innovation, and celebration.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Covid-19, AMBA & BGA will hold its Festival of Excellence, including the AMBA & BGA Excellence Awards 2021, in an innovative, virtual format.

Each session during the Festival will take the format of a one-hour masterclass session, featuring a conversation with a panel of leaders, representing trailblazers from the corporate world, as well as Business School leaders. Each session will also conclude with an interactive Q&A.
