Global Business School Alliance Program

AESC, and its BlueSteps career service for executives, currently has official relationships with nearly forty of the world’s leading business schools.  This program serves as a valuable resource to EMBA students and alumni  by helping them integrate executive search into their career management strategy. Additionally, the program provides support and resources to the career services teams of our partner and affiliate schools.

AESC also collaborates on key events with these prestigious institutions, thanks largely in part to the participation of AESC members who generously contribute their time and expertise to support the AESC Business School Program.  For more information on the AESC Business School Program, please contact Lisa Wales at lwales@aesc.org
