Research context
There is still little attention devoted to the subject of university and professional teaching in the economic- business field. Our teaching is destined to evolve continuously, in terms of content and didactic methodology, driven by the dynamic that concerns the needs of managers and entrepreneurs and that involves the economic, political and social context in which companies operate, (think for example of the current instability of international balances, climate change, pandemic management, and changes in work contexts). In this context, training and education are key to equipping the company to meet future challenges. It becomes important, therefore, to define the processes of designing and organising training initiatives in the economic-business sphere in a more inclusive way with respect to the needs of students, companies, institutions and the territory, paying attention not only to the contents and coherence between them, but also to the didactic/pedagogical approaches as well as the continuous monitoring of the entire training system.

Type of paper expected
With the aim of stimulating a debate on the role of management and business education within this scenario of uncertainty and change, this track proposes several areas of investigation to be explored with conceptual and empirical studies.
