Leading for Impact

The role of a dean has perhaps never been more dynamic than it is today. Leading a complex organization in a rapidly changing business education landscape through a global health crisis. 

How can business school leadership adapt to a new normal that has not even been defined? The virtual AACSB Deans Conference convenes business school leaders to address common challenges but, more importantly, to create and share solutions that will outlast the disruption and create positive impact.

Join the largest global event for business school deans to focus on four key themes: strategy, emerging trends, societal impact, and management. With new networking opportunities, roundtable discussions, and a flexible schedule, the deans conference is a rich and engaging virtual experience that connects longtime colleagues with newly appointed heads of business education units and AACSB leadership.  

By learning from each other we can emerge from the global pandemic as more impactful leaders, with innovative programs, more flexible faculty and staff, and better student outcomes. 

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 in leadership roles. Registration substitutions (i.e., replacing one individual with another individual for the same event) will not be granted for this event.


"The AACSB Dean's conference is the best and most efficient way to liaise with other business school deans from around the world to discuss approaches and solutions to shared issues and problems."
—William R. Holmes, Dean, Faculty of Management, Royal Roads University.

"A highly engaging and inspirational event, full of ideas and passion about the power of education to transform lives."
—Ignacio de la Vega, Dean EGADE Business School

"As a first time attendee, I didn't know what to expect, but was enormously pleased with the sessions and presentations. Everyone was friendly, engaging, and welcoming. This is one of the nicest, most beneficial conferences I have attended and I will come back again."
—Dr. Astrid Sheil, Incoming Dean, Shenandoah University, Winchester, VA
