The association serves as the global accrediting body and membership organization for business schools.JAMES “JIM” TURLEYTurley is the former chair and CEO of Ernst and Young; Barry is vice president and general manager at Working Mother Media.The Influential Leaders represent a “unique and inspirational array of trailblazers, including the CEO of one of the world’s largest global relief services, a technology pioneer who is working to cure cancer, the founder of a global e-commerce powerhouse and an enterprising president attributed with reviving an international toy industry favorite,” according to the AACSB’s announcement. More than 20 industry sectors, from consumer products to health care to nonprofits, across 21 countries are represented in this year’s inaugural group.Turley earned a Bachelor of Arts in economics from Rice in 1977 and a Master of Accounting from Rice’s Jones Graduate School of Business in 1978. In his role as chair and CEO of Ernst and Young from 2001 to 2013 — one of the most turbulent periods in the public accounting industry’s history — Turley was committed to enhancing the public’s trust in professional services firms, the quality of financial reporting and the culture at Ernst and Young, according to the AACSB’s citation.SUBHA BARRYBarry earned a Master of Business and Public Management and Master of Accounting from the Jones School in 1985. Barry traveled from India to the U.S. to pursue her graduate education. “In an effort to overcome the social stigma of leaving home unmarried back in the early 1980s, she was determined to become successful,” her citation said. “A few years after earning her MBA, she took a job as financial adviser with Merrill Lynch. Barry leveraged her unique perspective to recognize the investment needs of minority populations. The leadership at Merrill Lynch sponsored her vision to match underrepresented client groups with talent in the industry.”Jones School Dean Bill Glick, chair of the AACSB Board of Directors and Centennial Committee, nominated Turley and Barry for the recognition.“The Influential Leaders challenge is the story of how AACSB-accredited schools and their esteemed alumni are positive catalysts for change,” Glick said. “As the AACSB looks ahead to our next 100 years, society’s expectations of management education’s role — and those in leadership capacities — will continue to rapidly evolve. We can learn from the Influential Leaders and participating schools about creating impactful change. I am very pleased to recognize each, and congratulate their nominating schools.”-30-Follow the Jones School via Twitter @RiceMBA.Follow Rice News and Media Relations via Twitter @RiceUNews.
