Deans Conference 2020: By the Numbers (Infographic)
View key stats and fun facts on AACSB's upcoming Deans Conference, including number of attendees globally, sessions offered, and Nashville features.
Business education globally is experiencing unprecedented transformation, with business school deans leading the change with their vision for the future. Arriving at that vision is no easy task; deans must consider the needs of not just the learners who enter and leave their schools, prepared for an ever-evolving workplace, but also the needs of their staff, business, and society at large.
This year, deans from all over the world will convene February 2–4 in Nashville, Tennessee, for the purpose of “Connecting Visionary Mindsets.” Participants at AACSB’s 2020 Deans Conference can look forward to sessions that will always be relevant to the dean’s role, like managing faculty, time, and budgets, as well as sessions on topics that reflect the changing higher education landscape, like online program managers, evolving program models, responsible research, and mental health challenges in students—and many sessions in between that explore all the ways business schools can create lasting impact.
Another key reason to attend Deans Conference is the unique opportunity to network with other deans and business school leaders through formal and informal gatherings. Here’s glimpse of the stimulating event you can look forward to this year:
