Join the Fox School of Business at the 2019 Impact Summit, where researchers, deans, senior executives and public policy leaders will convene to deliberate on how business schools can make a greater impact on business practice, policy and in the community at large.

Building on the success of the 2018 Editors’ Summit, the Fox School is spearheading an initiative to develop clear ways of defining and measuring the impact of business scholarship, discuss pathways for building business schools’ capacity of intentional and consistent translational research, and share insights quickly between academia, industry and society.
