Draft Agenda


Call for Proposals

In honor of 25 years of IACBE and our focus on being a premier member organization, we are making this year’s theme “Members’ Choice”. We hope to encourage a wide range of submissions on subjects that higher education business program professionals are passionate about. We hope the Members’ Choice theme, as part of our overall Moving. Forward. Together. vision, expresses what we hope for 2021, and underpins our belief that excellence in business education requires respecting and valuing the unique characteristics, attributes, and perspectives of all stakeholders in the educational process and results in graduates who possess the knowledge and skills to meet the needs of the future business environment.

The IACBE welcomes proposals for presentations in areas that support excellence in business education. Examples of topics include preparing students to be adaptable and agile in the rapidly changing business environment, ensuring equity, inclusion, and equal access to business education, providing experiential learning opportunities that develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, working with underprepared students, developing socially responsible leaders, integrating a variety of teaching modalities to reach students (on-ground, online, hybrid, other), teaching techniques for specific business topics, or any other topic related to the theme that supports excellence in business education.

View the full Call for Proposals and submit by December 10, 2021.


Keynote Speaker Dr. Christopher Washington

Christopher Washington Headshot“Beyond Healthy Programs: Anti-Fragilizing the B-School”

Many business schools are faced with the rapid nature of change, an increasingly competitive landscape for business education, and shifting needs of learners. And yet, the functional fixedness of many business schools can serve as a “fragilizer,” making them vulnerable to unpredictability and volatility in the educational marketplace. Alternatively, business school leaders can examine the fragilizing features of B-Schools that potentially lead to unsustainability, and take what Nassim Nicholas Taleb refers to as an “antifragile” lens to the way they engage in “regeneration” and institutional sustainability practices. Dr. Washington will describe how antifragile thinking applied to education is a way academic leaders can consider and manage emerging risks, efficiently respond to shifts in demand, and develop more flexible operational and instructional approaches that consider human networks, talent and asset alignment, curriculum offerings and delivery modes.
