Presentation, November 9, 2016

Andrew Main Wilson, Chief Executive of the Association of MBAs gave some input to that topic, talking about the necessity to align the Principles of Responsible Management Education with the SDGs.

Mr. Wilson, being an alumnus from the Harvard University, mentioned that in the past, graduates from his university went to big companies in order to gain a lot of money, but mindsets have changed as half of Harvard alumni go nowadays to Non-Profit Organisations.

Andrew Main Wilson has a wealth of experience leading senior teams and managing complex organisations in the commercial and not-for-profit sectors. His extensive management experience includes running a premium brand membership organisation and building high level executive education services during his sixteen years with the UK’s Institute of Directors (IoD) as Chief Operating Officer and Managing Director of IoD Enterprises. During this period he launched a suite of qualifications including the Certificate and the Diploma in Company Direction and the Privy Council approved Chartered Director Accreditation. Before joining the IoD he was Marketing and Commercial Director of Thomas Cook and Sales and Marketing Director of Citibank Diners Club.
