April's Stories & Beer: Creative Disruption for the MBA

By Marissa Rosen

It's time for April's "Stories and Beer" event at the Impact Hub in SF - and online via webcam! Please join us on Thursday, April 23 to hear from Ed Quevedo (Mills College) and Maggie Winslow (University of San Francisco) about the future of the MBA degree and what innovative teachers around the world are doing to make tomorrow’s graduates truly sustainable thinkers.

If we were to re-conceive the MBA degree curriculum in 2015 with a clean sheet of paper, what elements might we consider? We’d likely need to think about incorporating transdisciplinary teaching, systems thinking, ecosystems science and community development into the curriculum among many other things. We would also want to consider new modalities of learning and teaching.



  • 6:30 – 7:00 PST – beer and networking (not streamed)
  • 7:00 – 8:00 PST – fireside chat and Q&A (live stream)
  • 8:00 – 8:30 PST – networking (not streamed)
