The IBSSC is also recognized as one of the most influential and international business school conferences globally. At each previous conference, the IBSSC has invited more than 40 deans as speakers, from top business schools in different parts of the world. Overall, we expect about 300 dean-level delegates, representing 160 business schools, from more than 50 countries and regions. Also as in previous years, we expect that about 60% of our participants will be from overseas, while the rest will be from local Chinese schools.

The questions are wide and varied, such as how to design new programs and courses that emphasize AI and related technologies, how to equip students with critical thinking and problem-solving skills that are demanded in an AI-driven world, and how to deal with new AI-related ethical challenges, to name just a few.
