Each part of the world brings its own unique challenges and opportunities to education, and AACSB strives to bring together experts who can uncover the strategies that benefit b-schools the most in their particular region. To what extent-and in what ways-do these evolving trends in management education impact b-schools in the Middle East and Africa?
This inaugural conference explores management education trends in this thriving region, while providing you with examples and best practices by leading b-schools. Serving as a forum for educators and business leaders from around the world, it is an excellent opportunity to come together to exchange ideas, review your school's strategies and techniques, and enhance your competitive edge.
