Research Committee

What We Do

Cutting-edge research is one of UNICON’s cornerstone activities, guided and coordinated by the Research Committee. UNICON-sponsored research seeks to deepen the understanding of the role of executive education, while generating practical knowledge for members and other practitioners.

Members benefit from UNICON research, as it can expand their knowledge of the field, while keeping them informed of recent developments.

Past research has covered topics such as innovation, blended learning, mobile technologies and leveraging alumni relationships. To see the entire archive of UNICON-sponsored research, visit the Content Hub:

Your idea will be carefully evaluated by the committee. Feedback and further guidance will be provided as soon as possible.
