The Global Management Education Landscape: Shaping the Future of Business Schools

On behalf of the Board of Directors for the Global Foundation for Management Education (GFME), we have great pleasure in announcing the publication of The Global Management Education Landscape: Shaping the Future of Business Schools.

The GFME is a joint venture of AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) and EFMD (The European Foundation for Management Development). The mission of the GFME is “to identify and address challenges and opportunities in, and advance the quality, content, and development of, management education and practice worldwide.”

The Global Management Education Landscape begins by identifying important global economic and business trends, as well as recent developments in management education. This insight then leads us to explore the possible implications of these trends on business schools in every region of the world, and to provide five recommendations that can help shape the future of management education.
