Last month, Dr. M. Moshe Porat was in exclusive company. The Dean of Temple University’s Fox School of Business, Porat attended the Global Deans’ Forum as an invited speaker.
The two-day event, held Oct. 24-25 at the HSBC Business School at Peking University, in Shenzhen, China, assembled 41 business school deans from colleges and universities located around the world. Porat was one of only six deans who represented American institutions.
The forum gathered deans and presidents of the world’s finest business schools, as well as members of various stakeholder groups and business community, thought, practice and entrepreneurial leaders, to engage in an open dialogue. Those in attendance shared insights from their respective corners of the globe, in the hope of advancing educational offerings through current trends and shifts in the business and management arenas.
In the forum’s first day, Porat participated in a global panel of deans titled, “Reflections on the Future,” during which Porat discussed the breadth of the services provided by Fox School’s Online and Digital Learning staff, and the challenges facing business education.
