Chartered ABS Annual Conference
5-6 November 2018, QEII Centre, London

Bookings open soon.

The Chartered ABS Annual Conference brings together the deans and directors of UK business schools and senior figures from government and industry.

The UK has some of the best business schools in the world: The sector contributes over £13 billion to the UK economy and plays a key role in helping UK universities act as ‘anchor institutions’, contributing enormously to their regional economies. Our business schools teach more students than any other subject, and one-third of all international students studying in the UK are studying on a business and administration course.

We encourage all those holding senior positions in business & management education, or who collaborate with UK business schools, to join us for discussion, debate and networking.

This year's programme is in development. Further details available soon.
