Inclusive Excellence in Graduate Business Curriculum: Taking It to the Next Level


February 23-24, 2023

TCU Neeley School of Business

Fort Worth, Texas


The MBA Roundtable is excited to announce our first in-person, regional workshop designed for faculty, February 23-24, 2023, hosted by the TCU Neeley School of Business in Fort Worth, Texas. Save the date and gather your faculty team to attend. Registration is now open.


Diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging have become a central focus in graduate business education. From transforming curriculum to be more representative of students in the classroom to preparing graduates to be culturally competent leaders in the ever-evolving business world, business schools have only begun to scratch the surface of inclusive excellence. Together, our goal is to create learning environments that foster an inclusive community filled with diverse perspectives, allowing us to forge a better path toward growth, respect and belonging.


Over a day and a half, the workshop will include topical presentations, as well of facilitated sessions for faculty, in which we will:


  • Examine the development of inclusive curriculum and learning factors.
  • Take a deep dive into the successes and challenges of creating an inclusive learning environment.
  • Explore innovation and inclusivity at the next level and paths for delivery.
  • Build a community of inclusive learning advocates in graduate business education.


A few examples of sessions that are in the works include:


  • Navigating Difficult Discussions: What to do when these topics come up in class
  • Case studies with faculty who are gaining insights through teaching new courses like Building Inclusive Organizations
  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Integrating it into quantitative courses
  • Small group discussions about the challenges you're facing and peer brainstorming on strategies moving forward

For MBA Roundtable member institutions, the fee for this workshop is $600 for the first registrant and $400 for each additional registrant.
