AACSB Bridge Program Graduates are Ready to Teach

Graduates of the AACSB Bridge Program are pre-screened to ensure participants meet general AACSB Accreditation standards for instructional practitioner status. Specific determination of professionally qualified or instructional practitioner status is made by individual business schools consistent with their mission and policies.

The first UK Bridge Program took place in June 2015, click here for a link to the announcement that was posted on the Chartered Association of Business Schools' website. 


"The Bridge Program has been a great resource for our department. We've used it to bring some of our new professionally-oriented lecturers up to speed with the nuts and bolts of delivering courses and we've also hired graduates from the program. People we've sent to the Bridge Program report that the experience was invaluable to their transition from the business world to the academy. People we've hired have been high energy, up-to-speed, and very focused on delivering a great course."

—Jon S. Davis, PhD, CPA,
Robert C. Evans Endowed Chair in Business | Head, Department of Accountancy
College of Business, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

With a wide variety of backgrounds, the graduates' teaching specialties cover a broad range of business curricula. AACSB’s Bridge Program has prepared more than 300 senior-level executives for careers in the classroom.
