Expand your network in interactive sessions, peer discussions, and inspiring keynotes at the Associate Deans Conference: built by, and for, senior business school administrators. Discover tools and insights into managing a complicated academic institution, either in-person or virtually. 

Associate, assistant, and vice deans commonly face competing priorities, limited resources, and people management challenges. You must be experts in balancing: goals vs. resources, personal time vs. workload, and faculty priorities vs. dean priorities.

COVID-19 has forced us to continually rebalance. Consider this conference an opportunity to reflect and adjust based on the key purpose of your position. Stay ahead of trends by discovering what fellow administrators are doing at their business schools and connect with peers in your role to find solutions to the unique challenges you face.
