Women In Business Education

A global movement that brings together women academics to connect on issues that matter

We champion women leaders in

business schools around the globe

Women in Business Education brings together those looking to stand up for diverse leadership and gender balance within business schools.   Progress is being made to build the pipeline of the next generation of leaders. So let’s accelerate progress, together.

Your research, work and ideas deserve to be seen and heard

(and be paid what you are worth)

It is time to disrupt what it looks like to lead in business education

Membership in WiBE means you will always know that no matter what is happening, you have a global community that always has your back. 

Covid-19 has the potential to eliminate the progress made for gender equity in business school leadership.


Women leaders in business schools, but they still lag considerably behind their peers with similar qualifications and experience. In the annual salary compensation and survey conducted by AACSB of over 400 business schools, women comprised only one out of four Deans, one out of three Associate Deans, and slightly more than one out of 5 Department Chairs. Women across all ranks still only earn 87¢ to the US$1 dollar earned by men.


Earned by women compared to $1 earned by men.
