UNICON 2021 Team Development Conference

Hosted by Johns Hopkins Carey Business School Executive Education

Bringing together the world’s leading universities in November 2021 to shape the future of executive education.

The executive education industry has experienced accelerated change in the learning and development marketplace. How do we build a flexible, accessible, and sustainable system that promotes lifelong opportunities for learning and professional growth? 

It is our pleasure to host the UNICON 2021 Team Development Conference.

UNICON is a global consortium of business‐school‐based executive education organizations. Through participation in UNICON, the leaders, managers, and team members of its member organizations gain new knowledge, inspiration, new perspectives, capabilities for enhancing the effectiveness of their operations, and a global network of colleagues.

The UNICON Team Development Conference is held annually each November and is the largest of its three annual conferences. The event is open to all executive education program staff at all member universities and provides an excellent opportunity for participants to network with colleagues, exchange industry insights and best practices, and discuss recent developments in the industry. This year’s conference focuses on building a sustainable, flexible and adaptable lifelong learning ecosystem fit for the future of work.

This fall, we will embark on a collaborative journey under the charge of our conference theme to understand the executive education space of today, forge what is next for executive education, and delineate clarity of purpose to evolve.
