Roundtable for the 20th anniversary of the OVSM


Come discuss with us the issues of university/business relations for pedagogy and research!

For the past 20 years, the Observatory of the Values ​​of Strategy and Management (OVSM) has tackled the challenges of new forms of management, in a digitized and globalized world and in an economy where the production of knowledge has its rightful place.

For two decades, the strength of the OVSM has been to create a meeting space bringing together actors from the academic world and leaders of important companies in Geneva. This pioneering model has made it possible to articulate pedagogy, knowledge production and corporate management by analyzing economic and social changes and defining the strategic actions to be taken to remain proactive in a constantly changing economic environment.

To celebrate this anniversary, the Geneva School of Economics and Management and the OVSM have the honor to welcome you on 29 October at 5:30 pm in room U300, to attend and participate in a roundtable which will mobilize actors committed to the triple challenge of relations between universities and the economic world: Pedagogy and training; Research and creation of knowledge; Transfer and economic impetus.
