AACSB Influential Leaders
Announcing the 2022 Class of Influential Leaders.
Each day, graduates of AACSB-accredited schools are creating lasting impact in their communities, industries, and around the world. The annual Influential Leaders member spotlight program recognizes these graduates and the business schools that prepared them.
The 2022 honorees include advocates across businesses, nonprofits, academia, and governments who are educating and empowering others to create welcoming, inclusive spaces for all. Together, they represent one facet of business education’s efforts to elevate diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) in the workforce and society—a key feature of AACSB’s 2020 business accreditation standards and the focus of a recently released positioning paper. The paper illustrates AACSB’s commitment to equitable access to high-quality business education globally and calls on the business education community to embed the tenets of DEIB into its strategies and cultures.
