Our distinguished MED Writers Workshop gives authors the opportunity to receive manuscript feedback from experienced MED reviewers and management education journal editorial boards members. Throughout the year, we also sponsor interactive MED Webinars which bring together academics and practitioners from around the globe to discuss the latest topics in management learning and education
