The ability to actively engage and maintain your institution's relationships is a challenging process that requires constant attention and a strategic approach. With a multitude of resources available in both traditional and online media, and increasing pressure to stand out and be recognized, the role of communications, development, and alumni relations can be an overwhelming task. But it does not have to be.
AACSB developed a symposium exclusively for professionals like you—those responsible for development, communications, and alumni relations in business schools around the world. The B-School Communications and Development Symposium combines everything you need to know into one event—whether you're looking for a results-driven, dynamic way to engage your audience or want to explore the latest trends and case studies in the industry, this symposium encompasses all that—and more.
From branding, budgeting, strategic communications and donor development, to social networking, this is your chance to gain access to information you can take back and implement at your school. Network and share ideas with your peers, and participate in detailed discussions on the latest trends and challenges shaping communication, development, and alumni relation efforts at universities worldwide.
