Greetings From Guy

Guy Pfeffermann

I was at Lagos Business School last month for the Association of African Business School’s annual conference. This was a lovely opportunity for me to meet old friends again and to reflect on progress achieved during the past decade. In 2005 GBSN, then a part of the World Bank’s International Finance Corporation, convened a workshop at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration – the location of this year’s GBSN annual conference - on business school accreditation and quality assurance. Much to my surprise few of the two dozen deans of African business schools who were there had ever met before. After two days of discussions the African participants saw a strong need for creating an association. They met again later that year at Lagos Business School, when AABS was founded. Today AABS is a network of 45 African business schools.
