Recognizing the Honorees

The 2019 Class of Influential Leaders was announced in February 2019. AACSB, together with the honorees and their alma maters and companies, used various media approaches to raise the awareness of the powerful impact of business schools and their graduates. The initiative achieved 1 million impressions (on Twitter alone) and nearly 400,000 engagements across social media platforms. Additionally, AACSB’s press release was listed in more than 700 outlets with a potential audience of more than 516 million readers in 100 countries. View some of the great examples!
