We are all united by a common thread: the advancement of quality management education. But each part of the world has its own unique challenges and opportunities, and distinctive ways of handling them locally and globally. It’s when we come together that we learn from our differences and share experiences. AACSB strives to bring together experts who can uncover the innovative strategies and b-school models that create impact in a specific region—and around the world.

The Europe Annual Conference explores management education trends specific to Europe, and this year's theme will build upon the concepts of Education and Learning for Innovation. Examine the biggest issues shaping business in the region, changes facing the industry, and discuss challenges and opportunities with your colleagues to keep your b-school current.

This conference is such an exceptional opportunity to join your peers to exchange ideas, review your own strategies and techniques, and enhance your competitive edge that it sells out every year! If you are looking to build a global network, establish alliances, and gain a deeper understanding of the issues affecting the region, the Europe Annual Conference should be a part of your academic calendar.

Who Should Attend

Deans, associate deans, department chairs, and faculty at business schools in Europe, those with interest in learning more about the management education landscape in Europe, as well as professionals from business schools worldwide working or seeking to work with schools in Europe.
