Leading New Imperatives and Possibilities

Serving as change agents, business schools are pioneering extraordinary ways for delivering education, creating solutions for ever-evolving industries, and improving society, from local communities to the world at large. Business schools are being called to address the needs of the students they educate and the various stakeholders they serve. AACSB’s Deans Conference is the premier event for connecting with business school leaders, discussing today’s challenges and opportunities, shaping the future of business education and leading new imperatives and possibilities. More than 600 business school deans from over 50 countries convene annually.


Who Should Attend

This event is exclusively for deans and heads of higher education business units (i.e., the highest academic authority or official of the entire business unit), and AACSB Business Members.
