Deans and directors from 30 business schools around the world get together every six months, with the spirit of "walk-the-talk"ing the "rapid-prototyping" and "failing-fast" approach to advanced management education.

Peter Todd of HEC started off the day full of exploration and experimentation ideas on network-based approach to alumni involvement, career services, communications reachout, and entrepreneurship and innovation education.

Eloic Peyrache led the session "Education & Entrepreneurship at Station F" with input from Berkeley Haas, ESMT, INCAE, and Technion, followed by testimonials from the frontiers in the future of education. Fascinated by the mind-blowing story of "42" - the teacher-less, course-less, and everything-less coding school!
