We examined factors contributing to the formation of a communications clique among deans representing a group of AACSB accredited colleges of business. We considered whether several variables which appeared to be related to clique status could be used to predict clique membership. We found some support for the idea that several factors play a role in determining group membership, but only agreement in opinion had a significant effect. Implications and suggestions for future research are discussed.
