Emerging Competencies for Societal Impact
Briefing | Updated March 8, 2023
Balancing profit with purpose, people, and planet is undoubtedly good for society, but it's also good for business. Complex global environmental and social issues require attention from leaders across sectors with wide-ranging competencies. AACSB is calling for systemic change through the expertise and action of business leaders and business educators worldwide to rethink the mindsets, competencies, and skills needed for future leaders to have a positive impact on society. The AACSB Accelerators work to create a new business philosophy and leadership framework as well as guide business schools in developing educated, skilled, and empathetic leaders who can succeed within business models where success metrics include sustainability and purpose in addition to profit. Through its accelerators, AACSB convenes cohorts comprising business and nonprofit executives, government officials, and business school leaders and learners focused on rapidly building the leadership framework that will prepare individuals to lead in a new desired future.
Explore the outputs and emerging competencies from the accelerators as AACSB works alongside societal impact leaders to design the next approach to business leadership.
