Present at ACBSP Conference 2017

The Annual Conference Committee invites proposals for presentations during ACBSP Conference 2017 in Anaheim.

The conference theme is Preparing Students for Career Success. Now, more than ever, business schools must demonstrate ways in which they are evolving to meet the needs of students and preparing them for a competitive global economy. How will this be accomplished? How can we, as business educators, transform our classrooms to meet the ever changing marketplace and provide the greatest educational value for our students? We invite you to explore and share successful strategies that will prepare our students for career success.

Presentation proposals may either be practitioner or research-based. This can be a presentation based on a previous presentation or research, or newly introduced presentation and research content. Additional track themes include teaching excellence and the accreditation process.

A Call for Presentations has been released and the deadline for proposals is January 31, 2017.
