About AABS

AABS supports graduate business schools through capacity building, collaboration and quality improvement programmes for deans/directors and faculty from African Business Schools.

The Association of African Business Schools (AABS) was formally established in October 2005 and was registered as a Non-Profit Organization in September 2007.

Our programmes aim to help with building effective business schools in order to improve management education in Africa and to enhance the relevance and contribution of business schools to African development.

AABS hosts an annual business schools conference for business school and business leaders across the continent called AABS Connect.  AABS Connect rotates around the continent on an annual basis and also includes a workshop for deans and directors of business schools as well as the AABS annual meeting.

AABS Connect provides an opportunity for discussion, expression of members views and interests and an opportunity for thought leaders in management education to gather and share ideas. For more information on AABS Connect click here.
