Leaders from 36 universities and colleges from across the United States and Canada converged on The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business campus for the MBA Roundtable Fall Symposium.

The symposium -- entitled: “Is business enough? The MBA in an interdisciplinary age” -- is designed as a forum for business school leaders to share and generate ideas that lead to improved MBA curricular offerings. Through panel presentations, expert speakers, and topic-based discussion, the two-day event took a close look at the ways business schools are building interdisciplinary education for MBAs via joint and dual degree programs, cross-university partnerships, and collaborative experiential labs.

“Part of our college’s mission is to facilitate collaborations and partnerships with thought leaders in academics, business and other critical disciplines,” said Karen Hopper Wruck, senior associate dean and professor of finance at Fisher. “We’re proud to host this important gathering designed to address issues and topics that are highly relevant to today’s university leaders and MBA students.”

The MBA Roundtable is a global association of business schools working together to inform and inspire MBA curricular and programmatic innovation. The organization, with 160 member schools, creates and disseminates knowledge on topics related to curricular change processes, curricular design, and learning outcomes measurement. This knowledge enables program deans, directors, and faculty to better manage curricular and programmatic change within their own institutions.
