We are pleased to announce our first combined ManageBac User Group & OpenApply Admissions Conference, held at Oberoi International School on November 3-4, 2017.

Registration will close on October 20, 2017.

ManageBac User Group provides an opportunity for schools to network, share best practices, and connect with the ManageBac team. We will offer IB programme-specific tracks as well as sessions oriented around ManageBac implementation with differentiation based on users’ existing experience. Prior topics have included:

  • Managing the Diploma Core
  • Rethinking DP for Curriculum Planning
  • Building Quality Curriculum in the MYP
  • PYP Units of Inquiry and Collaborative Planning

OpenApply Admissions will focus on "Admissions at the Leadership Table". Managing admissions & enrolment becomes more vital each year as the number of international schools worldwide continues to grow and competition increases. Since 2013 OpenApply has been working to fill the professional development gap in the admissions world in preparation for these increasing challenges. Past topics have included:

  • Why all schools should behave like start-ups?
  • Past How Big is your Welcome Mat?
  • Articulating the Mission of a School Through Admissions
  • Emotional Intelligence & School Admissions: Connecting People
  • Re-imagining School Admissions as a Learning Experience
