Diversity and Inclusion

Business schools have a commitment to social responsibility and creating future business and community leaders. Accordingly, AACSB strives to advance diversity and inclusion issues within the organization, its member schools, and the global business community. Recent updates to the standards for accreditation reinforce the idea that celebrating differences in people and ideas and providing a safe and supportive environment in which to do so enhances the educational experience in every business program.
As members and leaders in global higher education, AACSB business schools have a duty to uphold the equality of rights and opportunities for all individuals, regardless of differentiating traits, and to support knowledge and understanding of how individuals, organizations, and communities can be enriched through inclusive models and practices.

Unlock Access and Reducing Barriers

When business schools unlock access and reduce barriers, disadvantaged or underrepresented populations have greater opportunity for full participation in business education and employment.

Develop Skills Necessary for Diverse Contexts

By developing the skills, mindset, and perspectives, business schools enable individuals to effectively function within varying and at times unpredictable contexts, as well as lead diverse groups of people, which are defining characteristics of the next generation of business leaders.

Address Global Challenges

Business schools can influence tomorrow's workforce not only through teaching but also by demonstrating that they are upstanding and responsible global citizens in their own operations and practices as well as addressing global challenges where business school expertise can play a role.
