Embracing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
for Global Prosperity

Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion are core values for AACSB. Across the AACSB Business Education Alliance, individuals and organizations are leading inspiring initiatives to make business schools more inclusive places for learning, and to ensure a diverse and inclusive future of work. Responsive to local needs for inclusion, these strategies target a variety of populations around the world, connecting diverse talents in pursuit of global prosperity.


"The values of diversity and inclusion foster the exploration of … differences in a safe and supportive environment, where community members move beyond tolerance to seeking and celebrating the rich dimensions of diversity and the contributions these differences make to innovative, engaged, and impactful business experiences."

—AACSB Business Accreditation Standards
