Event Details

Infusing Innovation & Entrepreneurship into Today’s Higher Education

Date: June 28, 2017

Time: 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Location: Embassy Suites - Saratoga Springs, NY 



Why Attend This Conference?

The theme of the conference is Infusing Innovation & Entrepreneurship into Today’s Higher Education. It is very clear to many experts that the way we educate students is becoming more obsolete based on the coming employment shift. For educational institutions to remain viable they must teach a whole new career mentality that includes innovation, problem solving, entrepreneurship, and value creation. Better to take action now than wait until it is too late.

Who Should Attend This Conference?

This event is designed for those who hold leadership positions in higher education and are tasked with responding and leading through internal and external change.
