Biennial EBS partner conference takes place in Edinburgh                                           

Learning partners, collaborative partners, representatives from regional offices and alumni reps gathered in Edinburgh for a three-day event to learn about the School’s new programmes and build networks. 

The attendees travelled from as far as Uganda, Jamaica, Singapore and Mauritius to join the conference attended by delegates from fifteen countries.
 
During the opening session, the delegates were addressed by Edinburgh Business School’s Executive Dean, Professor Heather McGregor, Principal of Heriot-Watt University, Professor Richard Williams and Head of School of Social Sciences, Professor Robert MacIntosh.
 
Professor Heather McGregor, said:
 
"We are delighted to welcome our partners from around the world, who do so much to support our students, and we look forward to launching our new courses together in the coming months." 
 
The session allowed our Partners to learn about the exciting developments at the School and University, as we upgrade our online programme delivery and work on the implementation of the University’s Strategy2025.
 
The session was followed by a presentation by the Edinburgh Business School team, providing an overview of the new courses, learning platform and programme structures. During the conference the delegates also had the opportunity to learn more about our curriculum design and face-to-face delivery models.
 
As ever, Edinburgh Business School’s priority is to work with our Partners from around the world who share our vision of an enhanced student experience, as we introduce initiatives aimed at improving engagement with current students and the Heriot-Watt alumni community.
 
Professor Heather McGregor hosted a celebratory reception at Panmure House for the delegates, who had the opportunity to see the important historical asset that Edinburgh Business School and Heriot-Watt University have restored for the benefit of future generations.
