The Collaboration Concourse is an exclusive, member only benefit that serves as a virtual platform for member schools to explore and connect with other member schools around the world who wish to engage in collaborative partnership opportunities. From study abroad to faculty exchange, joint research opportunities and much more, the Collaboration Concourse helps schools identify peer schools and their specific collaborative interests.
The information in the Collaboration Concourse is collected directly from the AACSB Collaborations Survey, in which schools can indicate their desired partnerships. A member institution must participate in this semi-annual survey in order for their desired collaborations to be found in the Collaboration Concourse. If you have not participated in the Collaborations Survey, but wish to participate in the Collaboration Concourse, your survey can be re-opened for completion by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Searching the Collaboration Concourse
The Collaboration Concourse is housed within The Exchange; the member only, global online network that allows your school to directly communicate and share resources with your peer management educators. To search for collaborative partnership opportunities, access the Search Collaboration Concourse feature and enter your search criteria to find matching schools who are seeking collaborations.
