Impact of Research: A Guide for Business Schools
Insights from the AACSB International Impact of Research Exploratory Study
This guide draws on the experiences of ten business schools that participated in an exploratory study following the release of the Final Report of the Impact of Research Task Force. The study was intended to determine the overall feasibility of schools undertaking more concerted efforts to assess the impact of intellectual contributions, assess the burden and costs to schools, and begin to explore appropriate measures of impact. The guide is intended as a resource to assist any business school that seeks to better understand the connection between the research activities it supports and the school's mission, target objectives, and stakeholders.
