Over the last 20 years, the EFMD network has grown and become a truly global community. We are also very aware of the need to foster, enhance and build on local relationships and support the development of management education in certain key areas.

That is why we decided to appoint eighteen regional EFMD Fellows, who share with us the aim of elevating the value of management education and development.

In light of the current crisis, which will have a profound impact on all aspects of life, society and all economies for many years ahead, the need to remain a strong and supportive community has never been higher. EFMD now has a global reach, but diversity is one of our core values. Being rooted in local communities and supporting schools of all types is of our utmost importance.

We are honoured to introduce the EFMD Fellows, who will be the beacon for global management education, the value of business schools and the role of business.
