The Promise of Business Doctoral Education
Setting the Pace for Innovation, Sustainability, Relevance, and Quality
Business doctoral education has directly contributed to advancing the intellectual foundations of business and management, sustaining vibrant academic communities, and elevating the scholarly reputation of business schools within universities.
Yet the lens through which we evaluate the needs served by doctoral education is broadening, and imminent issues in global doctoral education still must be addressed. Doctoral education design and delivery models must continue to evolve in a way that best supports different needs, experiences, and goals around the globe. Schools must look globally to identify effective practices, seek partners, and understand the forces impacting their recruitment, positioning, and placement strategies—all while providing an unrelenting attention to quality.

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.
