SNSPA International Week STRATEGICA Pre-Conference Masterclass in Bridging Society, Business, and Academia for Quality Education

The quality of education is an aggregate result of complementary forces ranging from society and business to academia. Fostering strong partnerships among different stakeholders (i.e., individuals, companies, institutions, communities, etc.) has gained momentum as a prerequisite of value co-creation within the wider ecosystem. This is why a discussion on quality education should take into account all these layers and should attach the proper importance to each of them:
  • how and to what extent could society foster a propelling context for quality education?
  • how and to what extent could businesses foster a propelling context for quality education?
  • how should viable partnerships look for achieving measurable outcomes?
  • do we have any examples of best practices from other countries?
