What's new at ICAM 2018?:

  • Check the agenda regularly for up to date information and new activities!
  • Hawaii inspired dress code: The standard business attire in Hawaii is very different than a typical conference dress code. We would like to modify the 2018 ICAM attire to meet the standards of local culture. We encourage you to leave your business attire at home, and wear island inspired clothes during ICAM. Short sleeve aloha shirts and tropical print dresses are encouraged, and a formal “suit” is not necessary.

The 2018 International Conference and Annual Meeting (ICAM 2018) will bring together the collective strength of the world’s top business academics and collaborators to champion the future of business education and the schools that provide it. Join us in Hawaii and come inspired to:
  • Ho'ohui. — Connect to a culture that successfully embodies tradition while embracing progress. Unite with longtime acquaintances and make new ones whose diverse perspectives contribute to a shared mission to redefine business education.
  • 'ike. — Discover how to shape graduates who will be adaptable enough to address the global business environment they will be charged with shepherding to success—in a world where the only constant is change.
  • Alaka'i — Lead with innovative thinking, purposeful connections, collaborative initiatives, and the synergy of great minds to craft resolutions to the mountainous challenges yet to be conquered.

Our conference agenda is deliberately crafted to allow the right balance of time connect, discover, and lead. So take your time…see why there’s more to Hawaii than just sun, sand, and surf.

7 Reasons to Attend AACSB’s International Conference and Annual Meeting


Featured Speaker

Paul_ZakPaul Zak, scientist, entrepreneur and author of Trust Factor and The Moral Molecule

Paul Zak’s two decades of research have taken him from the Pentagon to Fortune 50 boardrooms to the rain forest of Papua New Guinea.  All this in a quest to understand the neuroscience of human connection, human happiness, and effective teamwork.  His academic lab and companies he has started develop and deploy neuroscience technologies to solve real problems faced by real people. His book, Trust Factor: The Science of Creating High Performance Companies (2017), uses neuroscience to measure and manage organizational cultures to inspire teamwork and accelerate business outcomes.  His 2012 book, The Moral Molecule: The Source of Love and Prosperity, recounted his unlikely discovery of the neurochemical oxytocin as the key driver of trust, love, and morality that distinguish our humanity.   In another obsession, Paul’s group uses neuroscience to quantify the impact of movies, advertising, stories, and consumer experiences.  Along the way, he has help start several transdisciplinary fields, including neuroeconomics, neuromanagement, and neuromarketing. Paul is the founding Director of the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies and Professor of Economics, Psychology and Management at Claremont Graduate University. He has degrees in mathematics and economics from San Diego State University, a Ph.D. in economics from University of Pennsylvania, and post-doctoral training in neuroimaging from Harvard.
