DataDirect allows users to create customized reports, customized comparison groups, tables, charts, and percentiles.

DataDirect is the most comprehensive database on business schools worldwide. Whether you want to examine what peer schools are paying their faculty or determine if your institution is the largest provider of undergraduate accounting degree programs in your region, DataDirect allows AACSB members to quantify just about anything that relates to business schools.
