History of the Deanship

As outlined in the Constitution of the Fellows of the Academy of International Business, the Dean of the Fellows serves as the administrative officer of the AIB Fellows group for term of approximately three years.

Deans are responsible for organizing and overseeing all the activities of the Fellows, presiding at Fellows Business Meetings, and appointing a Deputy Dean and a Secretary-Treasurer to assist in conducting the affairs.

The Dean also appoints one or more persons as a committee to conduct elections of new members and assigns other committees to perform particular functions, as the need arises.
