Effectively addressing sustainability challenges in the age of industrial revolution 4.0 require responsible leadership in all spheres of economy, business and society. Role of business schools and corporate sector is essentially vital for enabling dialogue, development and practice of responsible leadership specially in emerging and developing economies.

Yet another shining part of IRC 2018 is its flagship panel discussion namely, Great Debate 2018, whereby the panelists from industry and academia share their scholarship and experience to reconcile over sustainability issues in emerging and developing economies. The panel discussion is part of the plenary session of the conference. This year the Great Debate 2018 is titled as:

Academia-Industry Dialogue on Responsible Leadership: Role of Curriculum in Higher Education for Sustainable Economy, Business and Society 

The panel discussion is in collaboration with UN Principles of Responsible Management Education (UN PRME-ASEAN chapter). The distinguished panel discussants from academia and industry will reflect on their scholarship and experience to highlight issues and prospects in higher education curriculum for nurturing well-needed responsible leadership for sustainable economy, business and society in the age of IR 4.0.
