Jikyeong Kang to lead AACSB board of directors

AIM president will be the first board chair from an Asia Pacific Business School

Asian Institute of Management (AIM) president, dean, and MVP professor of Marketing, Jikyeong Kang, will serve as 2021-22 board chair of AACSB International (AACSB), world’s largest and the most prestigious business education alliance and accreditation body.

“As a long-time volunteer of AACSB, I am honored to serve as chair of the board of directors during this pivotal time for business education,” said Jikyeong Kang. “Access to high-quality business education has the potential to create meaningful, lasting impact worldwide, and I believe AACSB is well-positioned to lead this effort. I look forward to joining my colleagues on the board of directors in this exciting endeavor.”

Appointed as the first AACSB board chair from an Asia Pacific business school since it’s inception in 1916, Kang brings to the table her extensive background and expertise in the field of business education.

At present, Kang serves as the first female president of AIM, a position she assumed in 2015. Alongside venerable Ivy League business schools such as Harvard University, Yale University and Duke University, AIM is the only school in the Philippines with AACSB accreditation—one of the first 10 schools to be accredited in Asia.

Kang likewise holds key positionsin other renowned international organizations. She is a board member of European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD); a council member of the Association of Asia-Pacific Business Schools (AAPBS); and a board member of the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), which was founded in 2007, supported by the United Nations Global Compact. She is also a Fellow of the International Academy of Management (IAOM).

Additionally, she serves on the international advisory boards of several premier international business schools, including Stockholm School of Economics, ESADE Business School, Hanken School of Economics, LUMS Business School, and Yonsei Business School.

Recognized for her efforts to expand global diversity and inclusion initiatives, Kang’s experience will guide her and the AACSB board of directors to further foster engagement, accelerate innovation and amplify the impact of business, regionally and globally.

“Jikyeong brings a diverse, global perspective to AACSB and a deep understanding of the connections between business education and the business community. We look forward to her inspiring and thoughtful leadership as we focus on driving positive societal impact and furthering AACSB’s diversity and inclusion efforts, worldwide,” said Caryn Beck-Dudley, president and CEO of AACSB.

Kang’s term as board chair begins July 1, 2021, and extends one year.

As a valued thought leader, Kang is steadfast in her commitment to drive positive change, and support AACSB and AIM’s goal of creating our society’s next generation of great leaders.
