Creating a sustainable future for business education requires the cultivation of meaningful relationships with business partners and communities, built on trust and action. This April, we are proud to convene the largest global gathering of business school leaders virtually at AACSB’s International Conference and Annual Meeting.

Join hundreds of your peers as we focus on connecting for better. Through our connections to each other, to business partners, and to our communities, we can improve student success, faculty engagement, program quality, and the way we lead our organizations.

The 2021 virtual ICAM has more than 40 hours of engaging sessions, peer networking, regional and topical meetings, and social discussions. Your conference registration also provides access to the Exchange, where you can interact with your peers. Recorded sessions will be available for 90 days to all registrants upon completion of the event.

“It is through co-creation of knowledge, collaborative innovation, and integrated leadership that business schools advance solutions and strategies that are relevant, effective, and sustainable.”

Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know
The past year has led us to rethink fundamental assumptions—where to work, how to manage remote culture and collaboration, whether to reimagine our strategy and our products or services. Yet too many leaders and employees are reacting to events instead of proactively looking for opportunities to think again. We'll examine how we can update our own opinions, open other people’s minds, and build a learning organization in which people know what they don’t know and are eager to improve on the status quo.
