Our Story

ABIS (formerly known as EABIS) was founded in 2001 and launched at INSEAD in 2002 with the support of the leading Business Schools in Europe (INSEAD, IMD, London, ESADE, IESE, Copenhagen, Warwick, Vlerick, Ashridge, Cranfield, Bocconi) in partnership with IBM, Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson, Unilever and Shell. This initiative was driven by a shared belief that challenges linked to globalization and sustainable development required new management skills, mindsets & capabilities. In order to respond to this need and to support research to underpin better education and learning, ABIS developed a stronger role in the arena.

Our Mission

ABIS promotes knowledge-based transformation through corporate-academic collaboration and supports members to tackle challenges and attain a more sustainable future.
