The global management education landscape is continuously evolving and as a dean you are the backbone of your b-school. It's your responsibility to strategically lead your school in the right direction by identifying opportunities and overcoming strategic challenges. This can be a daunting task, but building a strong network of peers will help your efforts to make a difference.
As one of our most highly anticipated and popular events, AACSB's Deans Conference consistently brings more than 400 deans from up to 40 countries together—which creates an invaluable networking opportunity. This is your chance to build and expand your network at the premier international forum exclusively for business school deans, while participating in a variety of thought-provoking sessions from top business leaders and educators.
The line-up of speakers at the Deans Conference represents unique perspectives and insight from across the globe. Take part in conversations with topics vital to management education in today's world, and garner new ideas to implement at your institution.
