AACSB Influential Leaders Initiative

AACSB's annual Influential Leaders member spotlight program recognizes notable graduates from AACSB-accredited business schools. In 2022, the initiative will feature business school alumni who are serving as champions of diversity and inclusion. 

Each AACSB-accredited school was invited to nominate one alumni for consideration, detailing how the nominee is:

  • serving as a champion for diversity and inclusion.
  • using their business education to lead or innovate.
  • inspiring future business leaders.

AACSB's member spotlight programs are a great opportunity to showcase the achievements of business education to a global media audience. The nomination period closed on October 15, 2021. Honorees will be announced in February 2022.
