A partnership between EFMD and the Chartered Association of Business Schools

The role of a business school dean has become increasingly pressured and challenging in a highly competitive global environment. After seven successful editions, the International Deans Programme (IDP) will run again, starting in November 2015.

Target Group
The IDP is aimed at recently appointed deans/ directors of business schools that are members of the Chartered Association of Business Schools and/or EFMD. It is a great networking opportunity to collaborate internationally. The IDP enables a group of up to 20 international deans to visit business schools in three countries. You will gain a unique overview of strategy, operations, structures and future markets in business and management education.

The 2015 programme will visit:

3-5 November 2015

12-13 January 2016:

19-20 April 2016


* "The IDP appealed to me because I was looking for assistance and inspiration. As a new Dean I was also keen to get insights from other Deans about the challenges they were facing in different institutional and cultural contexts and how they dealt with them. I was also seeking ideas on how I might transform my own Business School. I have benefited from the wisdom of those Deans and other senior officials who have been refreshingly frank in reflecting on their careers and it has been a special pleasure to meet and to build friendships with my IDP colleagues."
Prof. Greg Whitwell, Dean, The University of Sydney Business, School, Australia
