Paul Shrivastava recognized as AACSB Influential Leader

AACSB International (AACSB), the global accrediting body and membership association for business schools, announced today that Paul Shrivastava, Executive Director of Future Earth, has been recognized as one of the first 100 AACSB Influential Leaders

Paul Shrivastava joins individuals from more than 20 industry sectors, from consumer products to healthcare to nonprofits, across 20 countries.

 “AACSB is honored to celebrate Paul Shrivastava — and the collective 100 Influential Leaders — as a representation of how business school alumni have positively influenced society, as well as the management education industry’s, past, present, and promising future,” said Thomas R. Robinson, president and chief executive officer of AACSB International.

For the nomination process, AACSB developed a short list of open-ended questions that provided a framework for expectations for nominees. From April to June 2015, AACSB-accredited business schools submitted notable alumni who have made (or are making) an impact in the world. From the nominations, a selection committee reviewed and chose stories that showed a sampling of the positive impact that business school graduates have made on society. For the full list of recipients, visit
