Disruption. Impact. Sustainability
Sasin School of Management has been entrusted by the Association of Asia-Pacific Business Schools (AAPBS) to host the AAPBS Virtual Conference 2020. We certainly live in extraordinary times! The COVID-19 global pandemic has affected almost every aspect of our lives – from the way we work, the way we teach, and the way we interact with family, friends, students, and colleagues. It’s hard to imagine a more pervasive disruption to our schools, our industry, and our economies. Yet it’s clear that through education we can continue, and even expand the positive impact that we have on our stakeholders and on our communities. To do that, we must all review our core missions, re-examine the impact that we have on our communities, and realize that through long-term, sustainable thinking and practices, we can thrive in this disrupted world. With this in mind, we have worked closely with the AAPBS team to arrange for some of the top leaders in sustainability, business, and education to participate in a series of keynote presentations, panel discussions, and talks around the theme: Disruption. Impact. Sustainability. Event Timing: (Bangkok Time) November 25th: 2pm – 5pm November 26th: 2:15pm – 4:30pm Event Method: Online (ZOOM) Click HERE to register and reserve your spot!
