The ABS is delighted to announce the signing of a reciprocal membership agreement with the Federation of Canadian Business School Deans (CFBSD). Combined the organisations represent just shy of 200 business schools, over 320,000 students and 16,000 faculty.
Both organisations have synergy in their missions and goals including providing excellence through:
• Representation on policy issues
• Research & Information services; and
• Conferences and networking.
This agreement will herald a formalised way of working, improving benefits to both members of each organisation.
Vicky Robinson, Head of Marketing and Communications said: "The ABS welcomes CFBSD as our newest strategic partner, business and management by its very nature is global and through our partnerships with CFBSD and our others in Asia, Europe and the Baltic region will allow us to foster better working relationships and an improved offer for our mutual members".
Tim Daus, Executive Director, Canadian Federation of Business School Deans also welcomed this move and said: "This is a great step forward for both organisations, meaning that we will be able to offer a more rounded portfolio of products and services showing joined up thinking across the continents.
"I look forward to working with ABS in the future and collaborating on research and events".
