According to Alain Dominique Perrin, the year started positively with the largest number of Deans at the Annual Dean’s Conference in Istanbul. 2300 members have attended events and seminars throughout the year. Problems in the economic cycle mean that business schools are facing many challenges. EFMD is a source of knowledge and sharing of best practices to help them overcome these problems. Mr. Perrin then thanked everyone for attending conferences, being a part of PRT and making contributions on boards.
Alain Dominique Perrin then asked the assembly to ratify the new members into EFMD.
