For the past 60 years Antwerp Management School has been at the forefront of innovation, transformation and entrepreneurship, always in the best interest of people and society. AMS celebrates its 60th anniversary with a four-day festival about the future. Contradictory as this may sound, it is completely in line with the baseline of AMS: “Opening minds to impact the world”. During the opening night on Wednesday 28 August, the audience was already given various mind openers to take home. With top guests such as Dries Van Noten, Winston Ma and Sindi Mabaso Koyana, you would expect nothing less.
Scientists are already able to hack human beings thanks to the rapid evolutions in biotechnology, AI, neurosciences etc. At the same time, stress is the number one cause of long-term sickness absence. It’s high time we put scientific and technological progress at the service of well-being and health at work. Melexis and Antwerp Management School have already found each other in a groundbreaking Chair that uses technology and insights from neuroscience to strengthen organizations and people.
Together with PwC, Antwerp Management School mapped out to what extent established companies and start-ups in Belgium work together and what plans they have for the future in that respect. This resulted in the very first Belgian Corporate Venturing Barometer 2019.

Their aim: to map out the career policies of organizations and formulate recommendations to prepare both employers and employees for tomorrow’s job market.
Every two years, Antwerp Management School (AMS) awards an exceptional and inspiring person who has a lasting impact on our society with the Global Citizen Award. On November 16, 2017, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker had the honor.
