Until recently, women rarely reached the executive suite at business schools, with most deanships being held by men. But that is starting to change. This year, women make up nearly 17% of deans at business schools, up from 11% back in 2002, according to member school data from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), a leading business school accreditation agency. Experts expect that number to continue to grow in the next decade, as more women get their PhDs in business, take on administrative jobs, and serve as role models for future generations of women leaders.
Of the 668 deans at AACSB member schools, 95 are women, many of whom have only been in their positions for a few years. In this slide show, we talk to 13 female deans, all of whom offer insight into how they approach their job.
