Business schools need to demonstrate real impact on the practice of business and public policy. Today, many question whether research is getting disconnected from the real world, or if pressing business issues are unaddressed. As the Wall Street Journal put it, “Have business schools lost their way?”
The 2018 Editors Summit at the Fox School of Business gathers top academic and industry leaders to shape the future of research impact on the business world. With participants from multiple disciplines, the workshop aims to provide a platform for discussion between rigor and relevance; address the challenges of bridging academic insights to business practice; and find a way forward through actionable ideas.
Monday, March 12
Alter Hall 7th Floor
1801 Liacouras Walk, Philadelphia, PA 19122

Proudly sponsored by the Translational Research Center in the Fox School of Business at Temple University.
