Networking Communities for AACSB Business Members

These groups, led by AACSB volunteers, comprise members from throughout the Business Education Alliance and focus on a topic or discipline and its associated professional responsibilities or interests. Each group is formally structured with bylaws, a leadership structure, and regular meetings that occur in conjunction with most AACSB conferences.

To join an affinity group, email us at [email protected] with the name of the group or groups you’d like to join, and one of our global team members will notify you with access.

These communities are a mix of AACSB-founded groups and outside organizations that are available exclusively online via the AACSB Exchange. The groups meet to discuss trending topics and focused issues.

To join a virtual community, log in to the AACSB Exchange (member-only benefit) using the link provided next to each community description. Once logged in to the Exchange, click the blue “Join Community” button located to the right of the community name.
