A partnership between EFMD and the Association of Business Schools (ABS)

The role of a business school dean has become increasingly pressured and challenging in a highly competitive global environment. After six successful editions, the International Deans Programme (IDP) will run again, starting in September 2014.

Target Group
The IDP is aimed at recently appointed deans/ directors of business schools that are members of the Association of Business Schools (ABS) 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 2014 programme will visit: 

15th - 18th September 2014

14th - 15th January 2015:

15th - 16th April 2015

"The best part of my IDP cohort has been meeting a global subset of the world’s leaders of business schools from Asia, Europe, North America, South America and Africa, thereby having the opportunity to compare the priorities and agendas of leaders of business schools in the 21st century. This is a valuable experience that – even in our e-connected world – is not yet possible without this very personal exchange of views and insights. "
Prof. Per Holten-Andersen, President, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark
