Announcing the 2019 Class of Influential Leaders

AACSB is pleased to recognize 33 business school graduates as the 2019 Class of Influential Leaders. Each honoree is a shining example of how AACSB-accredited business schools prepare their graduates to create lasting impact in their communities, industries, and around the world.
AACSB is honored to celebrate the Class of 2019 and to highlight how each honoree represents the business education—and business—community’s past, present, and promising future. View the 2019 Class of Influential Leaders

About the Nomination Process

Each of AACSB’s 831 accredited institutions were invited to nominate up to two of their outstanding alumni for consideration. Each nomination provided details about the alum’s commitments to lead or innovate within their industry, impact their community or society, and inspire future business leaders. The final review yielded a class of 33 outstanding honorees, representing 33 AACSB-accredited schools in 13 countries. Learn More
