A Message From the President

Barry O’Brien, Ph.D.

Barry O’Brien, Ph.D.

Having participated in SBAA Summer Workshops and Annual Meetings for the past fifteen years, it is indeed an honor to serve as president of our organization. It has often been said that SBAA meetings are where business deans go to really learn their craft. Truer words were never spoken. SBAA connects us to the current best practices in management education. Last year our Summer Workshop at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina and our Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana offered terrific sessions related to Innovation, Engagement, and Impact.

The SBAA Board of Directors is hard at work planning a great year in 2016. Our Summer Workshop will be at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi (July 17-19). Our Annual Meeting is scheduled for Austin, Texas (November 13-15). From the opening reception and extravagant dinner on Sunday night through the sessions, breakfasts and lunches, the networking opportunities are plentiful and the informal discussions are lively and informative. Every meeting includes a presentation by officers from AACSB on accreditation matters, an optional golf outing, and a visit to a local business or cultural event in the host city.

With over 130 universities as members of SBAA, the officers, board members, and sponsors are proud to continue the fine tradition that stretches over fifty years. Please join SBAA for 2016 and participate in our meetings in Biloxi and Austin. As always, the annual membership dues are affordable and the registration fees for our meetings are reasonable. Please contact me if you have any questions about SBAA or if you would like to sponsor an event.
