AACSB offers two unique Bridge Programs to assist both experienced business professionals and non-business doctoral faculty with career transitions into a business school. The AACSB Bridge Program focuses on assisting experienced professionals with a transition to academia as an instructional practitioner. The Post-Doctoral Bridge to Business Program focuses on transitioning faculty members with doctoral qualifications in related, non-business disciplines to appointments in business schools. Both programs aim to assist schools with management education faculty shortages. Graduates of both programs are endorsed by AACSB International as qualified to teach as either instructional practitioners or scholarly academics.
The AACSB Bridge Program helps professionals from the corporate world transition to a business school teaching career.
