Gustavson School of Business Dean appointed to European Foundation for Management Development Board


June 20, 2019, Victoria, BC  - Earlier this month, the Peter B. Gustavson School of Business was honoured to see its dean, Dr. Saul Klein, recognized by his peers and named to the Board of the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD)​. The only board member to represent a North American institution, Klein joins a distinguished group of leaders from highly ranked business schools and corporations around the world. 

 “This appointment gives us an opportunity to shape the future of management education globally, while highlighting the leading role that the Gustavson School is playing in encouraging a more responsible view of business,” says Klein.

EFMD is a global non-profit based in Brussels, Belgium, offering conferences and events that address key issues for the industry, surveys and the dissemination of knowledge and accreditation  (including its widely known European Quality Improvement System, or EQUIS, accreditation). The EFMD is the largest international network association in the field of management development, with over 900 institutional members. 

Klein began serving on EFMD's Global Network Americas Advisory Board in 2017 and the EQUIS Committee in 2018. Gustavson is one of a very small minority – less than half of one percent – of all business schools worldwide to achieve full 5-year accreditations from both AACSB and EQUIS.
