The University of Chicago Booth School of Business is hosting the third annual Chicago Booth Education Management Conference, a critical convening of education leaders, practitioners, and graduate students. The Conference is an opportunity for students and practitioners alike to delve into current challenges and exciting trends in education, engage with emerging and ongoing academic research, and apply innovative business management principles to the education space. Through panels, workshops, keynotes, and networking conversations, we seek to create a forum for leaders to connect and transform the education landscape in Chicago and beyond. 

Your ticket includes a catered lunch during our Keynote Address, as well as drinks and hors d'oeuvres during the networking happy hour at the end of the day. Please visit our conference website for more information, including detailed session descriptions.

This year's conference is well beyond books and blackboards, focusing on transformative leadership and vision. Our keynote speaker Tim Knowles established the Urban Education Institute at The University of Chicago and is now Founder and Managing Partner of The Academy Group, a new enterprise designed to prepare young people from under-resourced communities to own and operate successful companies nationwide. Our eleven brand new sessions emphasize creativity and ingenuity, like "Envisioning the Future Classroom," highlighting augmented reality in the classroom with technology developers from Microsoft, along with "Creating Cultural Capital Through Arts Education," convening senior leaders from prominent arts institutions, including the Art Institute of Chicago and the Chicago Architecture Foundation. From early childhood education to college access, the Chicago Booth Education Management Conference spans the spectrum of education opportunity and entrepreneurship. We invite you to join us and join the conversation.
