50+20: Rethinking Management Education for the World: Katrin Muff at TEDxLausanneChange

http://www.tedxlausanne.org: Dr. Katrin Muff is Dean of Business School Lausanne, and one of the visioneers behind the 50plus20 initiative (http://50plus20.org). Inspired by the Rio+20 focus on the big issues of our time, a group of engaged stakeholders decide to do the same for management education, proposing a radical revision of the role of management education in society at large. Known as 50plus20, this initiative has shown remarkable results and continues to evolve and influence leadership for the common good. As one of the founders, Katrin Muff shares her story of positive disruption and the spirit of 'just getting started'. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­--------------------------------------- In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
