Stanford Graduate School of Business Global Education Conference
Strengthening the Connection Between Education and Innovation
Goldman Sachs’ annual global education conference at Stanford University brings together some of the world’s leading education authorities, innovators and investors seeking 21st-century solutions and strategies to improve academic achievement. The event, which has taken place at Stanford Graduate School of Business in each of the past two years, has produced promising results, including a joint venture between a national teachers union and an international private company that has created a venue for teachers to access resources, share best practices and promote collaborations among educators. The event attracts young companies looking to showcase new technologies, share best practices and adopt winning strategies to grow their businesses, and is a forum for policymakers and academic leaders to frame and discuss global issues in education.
