The Business School Roundtable is a forum dedicated to helping new and existing Canvas users reach the academic and strategic objectives that are unique to the business school environment. Attendees will represent national and international business schools of all sizes. Administrators, support staff, instructors, and end users are all welcome to participate.

We will have presentations from four business schools that have been using Canvas for four or more years. The moderators will discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of their experiences, with time for questions and group conversation. Presenters include Columbia Business School, Darden Business School, Wharton Business School, and UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School.

This forum is intended to meet the needs of a diverse group of business schools and while the focus will be on business school related topics, all of those interested are welcome to attend. The more the merrier! Click to Register ($50)
