AACSB Presentation and Discussion

Special Session: Reimagining Business Accreditation  (AACSB Accredited or In-Process Members only)
What would you change about AACSB business accreditation if you would wave a magic wand? What other models for accreditation visits should we consider? Is there a different way to measure faculty qualifications than the current AACSB Standard 15? If you would like to hear how we plan to tackle these big questions for the future of AACSB business accreditation, and, provide input to the task force, this is the session for you.
