Princeton-Fung Global Forum: The Future of Higher Education, April 9-11, 2014

HEC Paris' Dean, Bernard Ramanantsoa, will be speaking at the Princeton-Fung Global Forum on Friday 11th April 8.30-1.30am in session V on "Universities and Development: How Are Universities Agents of Social Change?"



  • Moderator: Francisco Marmolejo, Lead Tertiary Education Specialist and Coordinator of Network of Higher Education Specialists, The World Bank
    Featuring: Bernard Ramanantsoa, Dean, HEC Paris

    Respondents:
    Ambuj Sagar, the Vipula and Mahesh Chaturvedi Professor of Policy Studies, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi
    Lan Xue, Cheung Kong Chair Professor and Dean, School of Public Policy and Management, Tsinghua University, Beijing

    While higher education has been regarded as an engine of social mobility for those who have access to it, universities have also become instruments of social intervention for those who lack access. “Service” is an increasingly prominent facet of education. This is perhaps most evident in the burgeoning field of global public health and legal training.

    The notion that institutions of higher education should be at the vanguard of innovation and invention has paved the way for new partnerships with the private sector. This has been especially pronounced for institutions in developing societies, where it has fallen upon universities and colleges to promote the acquisition of skills combined with a social mission to “catch up.”
    How should we think about the balance between objective inquiry and social engagement? Does this challenge the traditional organization of teaching and research framed around classical disciplines? Does it overstretch the mission of already overcommitted institutions? Are service and development ornaments or organic parts of learning?

An exhilarating exit for this start-up of the French Tech acclaimed by most giants of the Net and by many major cloud service providers and e-commerce web sites, with often more than a billion Internet users every days.
