As the higher education landscape becomes more challenging to navigate, business schools struggle to demonstrate excellence and stand out among peer institutions. Consequently, the management education industry has placed a renewed emphasis on accountability and innovation in assessment. To respond to this development, we must reinforce that assessment is ever more important and make it a driving force throughout our institutions.

As one of AACSB's most diverse and informative events, the Assessment Conference: Driving Accountability and Innovation is your opportunity to explore current trends and global best practices, network with peers and experienced accreditation volunteers, and get a glimpse at what peer institutions are doing to stay current in assessment and assurance of learning (AoL).

This year’s conference offers a framework to measure, assess, and analyze your institution’s quality assurance efforts, while also presenting effective solutions, expert insight, and thought-provoking discussions to implement change at your b-school.

Whether your institution has recently begun the assessment process or is looking to take your AoL systems to the next level, this conference offers ample opportunities to gather new knowledge and insight to put a strong assessment system in place.

Who Should Attend:

Faculty, department chairs, associate deans, deans, those involved with faculty development, in charge of an institution's assurance of learning programs, new to assessment, experienced in assessment, and those working on obtaining or extending AACSB Accreditation at their school.
