The 2018 AACSB Influential Leaders Challenge will not be a “ranked” list but rather a recognition of the high caliber of alumni from AACSB-accredited business schools.
The positive influence that business graduates make on a daily basis allows AACSB-accredited schools to affirm their role as drivers of innovation and change to a global membership, student, and business community audience and position schools and their alumni as a force for good in society.
The Influential Leaders Challenge is open to AACSB-accredited institutions.
There are three (3) categories within the challenge:
Accredited schools many nominate up to two leaders for the challenge. The same leader may be nominated in more than one category. However, the questions and criteria for each category are different and should be carefully considered.
If your school nominated an individual for any of the previous Influential Leaders challenges and they were not selected as an honoree, they may be nominated again.
Leaders who have previously been selected as honorees for any of the prior years’ Influential Leaders challenges are not eligible for nomination in the 2018 challenge.
Nomination deadline: Friday, October 6, 2017
Honorees will be publicly announced at the AACSB Deans Conference, February 7–9, 2018.
