Global Reach of ABS Grows: Strategic Alliance Formed with the Australian Business Deans Council (ABDC)
The Association of Business School (ABS) is pleased to announce a formal collaboration with the Australian Business Deans Council by way of a reciprocal membership agreement.
This development cements an exciting strategic alliance, which will ensure ABS and its partner organisations’ work is aligned going forwards, including: capacity building, joint events, research, publications, membership on committees and added value for each organisations membership base.
Prof. Angus Laing, Chairman ABS and Dean of Business and Economics at Loughborough University said:
“This announcement comes at a pivotal moment in ABS’ development; we have recently announced our new strategic plan and cementing more partnership along with our existing reciprocal members means that we can deliver on our promise on a global scale going forwards.
Our Asia Pacific Business and Management Leadership Summit in KL in November is one example of how we are driving these partnerships forward – it is an exciting time to be involved with the Association and we plan on having a similar event in the MENA region next year.
Prof. Alec Cameron, President of ABDC will be presenting at this summit along with key business and management figures from around the globe”.
Prof. Cameron, President of the ABDC and Dean at the Australian School of Business at the University of New South Wales said:
“The Australian Business Deans’ Council (ABDC) is delighted to enter into a reciprocal membership agreement with the Association of Business Schools. In today’s globally connected business education environment, it is timely that we partner on an official basis to better share knowledge and information with our UK colleagues. The ABDC’s 40 members represent all business schools across Australia and we look forward to a fruitful and long term relationship with the ABS.”
