Small Schools Network Affinity Group Meeting (SCOTLAND)
@ AACSB's 2019 International Conference & Annual Meeting in Edinburgh, Scotland.
8:30am - 10:00am: Harris - Level 1
The Small Schools Network Affinity Group includes representatives from schools with typically 35 or fewer full-time faculty members. Engaging alumni and forming meaningful relationships with organizations can provide direct benefits to virtually every facet of the Business School. However, for Deans of small schools, managing these relationships can seem daunting and takes more time and effort than most small school Deans can spare. This session will start with a panel, members of which will share their success stories and innovative ways they have been able to address this challenge. Discussion of panelists’ presentations and sharing in small groups is expected to result in feasible ideas for building capacity to engage alumni and organizations in meaningful and beneficial ways.
