The theme for the 2021 Annual Conference and Assembly Meeting to be held at the Rosen Plaza Hotel in Orlando, Florida, USA, April 12-16, 2021, is MOVING. FORWARD. TOGETHER. With the challenges that we have all faced since early 2020, we decided to keep things simple. MOVING. FORWARD. TOGETHER. 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.
In line with this theme, the IACBE welcomes proposals for presentations in areas that support excellence in business education. Examples of topics include ensuring equity, inclusion, and equal access to business education, working with underprepared students, preparing students to be adaptable and agile in a rapidly changing environment, developing ethical leaders, using experiential learning inside and outside of the classroom, adopting different 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.
To be considered for the Best Paper Award, authors must submit a completed paper that is aligned with the 2021 ACAM theme. The paper must not have been previously published. The topic must be submitted as a conference presentation by December 10, 2020. The completed paper must be submitted for review by January 31, 2021. The award will be presented by Peregrine Global Services during the IACBE Annual Banquet on April 15, 2021.
The author of the selected paper will receive an invitation to attend a 2-day leadership development workshop presented by the Peregrine Leadership Institute during the subsequent 12-month period that includes $1,500 for travel reimbursement.
