Conference Theme: Sustainable Business Schools in Challenging Times


One of AACSB International’s most diverse conferences, this event blends the global leadership of European business schools with the bold aspirations of schools in the Middle East and the youthful dynamism of their African counterparts. With such diversity comes huge value from sharing ideas about critical issues impacting business education, benchmarking best practices, and developing cross-border relationships with other leading business schools. Connect with key staff in AACSB’s Amsterdam office, which serves the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) regions.


The conference will address a wide range of critical priorities and opportunities facing business schools in EMEA, including fostering social impact, diversity and inclusion, developing win-win partnerships, and embracing technological advances.  How do current events such as Brexit, the refugee crisis, climate change, and globalization affect business schools? How do we ensure that curriculum keeps pace with such fast changing times? How do we instill social awareness into our students – the world’s future managers and social change makers? Join us in Malta to engage in discussions on how business schools can impact communities to prosper in light of uncertainty and complexity.

Centrally located at the heart of the Mediterranean, the Maltese Islands are versatile, flexible and dynamic, retaining their long-held position as a favorite short-haul destination of choice.



 Who Should Attend

Deans, associate deans, department chairs, and faculty at business schools in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, as well as professionals from business schools worldwide working or seeking to work with schools in the EMEA region.

What Others Have Said

"The European Conference is always tops for networking, learning and idea generation."

—Dr. Stephanie Morgan, Associate Dean, Kingston Business School

The EMEA conference is a wonderful way to network, share experiences and good practice. It is always a great opportunity to get feedback from peers on what we have put in motion at our school, since we are at the beginning of the accreditation process. The sessions were also valuable and I came back with many ideas I shared with the faculty and governance of the school. I will definitely attend more conferences."

—Mélanie Cadart - Accreditation Officer - Groupe ESC Troyes, France
