Vision and Action

The 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 us virtually at the largest global event for business school deans to focus on business school strategy, emerging trends, societal impact, and leading change. With new networking opportunities, roundtable discussions, and a flexible schedule, the deans conference is a rich and engaging experience that connects longtime colleagues with newly appointed heads of business education units and AACSB leadership.

By learning from each other, we can become more impactful leaders, innovate in our curriculum, build more flexible faculty and staff, and create 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.
