Target Group
EFMD aims to facilitate research and a dialogue on topics related to Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and Business Schools by bringing together academics from management, higher education and related fields.

Since 2012, EFMD is engaging in a community-building effort to encourage research on business schools and their role in higher education. The Annual EFMD Higher Education Research Conference is designed as an anchor event of this initiative. It serves as a platform to facilitate the cross-fertilization of research by scholars from management, higher education as well as other fields. The forthcoming conference in Barcelona will be the 5th such conference. Previous events have been hosted by The Lorange Institute in Switzerland (2012), Paris-Dauphine University in France (2013), Stockholm Business School of Stockholm University in Sweden (2014) and Saïd Business School of the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom (2015).
