Registration is now open for the 2023 GBC Roundtable Symposium and 2023 PMBA/OMBA Conference! We look forward to hosting you at the University of Minnesota on October 11-13, 2023. Our goal for this year’s event is for you to bring additional team members to our combined event, including your academic and administrative leadership, along with key staff from your PMBA/OMBA programs. To honor our GBC Roundtable membership benefits as well as provide complementary pricing for our PMBA/OMBA partners we are instituting special pricing to make bringing your team possible.
Pricing for the 2023 GBC Roundtable Symposium and the 2023 PMBA/OMBA Conference will be:
- $850 for your first attendee
- $650 for each additional attendee
Everyone is invited to attend all 3 days of the conference (see tentative agenda), but to accommodate your busy work schedules the first half will be more focused on PMBA/OMBA while the second half will be more focused on GBC Roundtable, with shared content available all 3 days.
As we are expecting strong demand for our events, we ask that you register only 3 individuals from each institution at first but send us any additional staff members who wish to attend so we can add them to the wait list and get them registered as soon as we can.
