Innovations That Inspire

An annual initiative, the Innovations That Inspire challenge recognizes institutions from around the world serving as champions of change in the business education landscape. Now in its fourth year, the challenge has highlighted more than 100 business school efforts that exemplify forward-looking approaches to research, education, engagement and outreach, and leadership. To date, members of AACSB’s Business Education Alliance have shared more than 800 innovations, creating a robust repository via AACSB’s DataDirect system to inform and inspire fellow members and the industry.

Additional strength in business school research comes from organizations such as the Responsible Research in Business & Management (RRBM) network. The RRBM is dedicated to inspiring, encouraging, and supporting credible and useful research in the business and management disciplines, and AACSB is proud to partner with them in these efforts.

“The future calls for business schools to capitalize on academic strengths in order to grow and develop the rich space between theory and practice in ways that positively impact society. To do so, schools will need to pursue operational models and strategies that firmly position themselves at the intersection of industry and practice, as conveners and partners in the knowledge creation ecosystem rather than just suppliers.”

—AACSB International, A Collective Vision for Business Education

2019 Innovations That Inspire

The 2019 Innovations That Inspire challenge invited members of AACSB’s Business Education Alliance to identify ways they are inspiring new approaches to thought leadership and increasing its impact through the co-creation of knowledge—a key opportunity of AACSB’s Collective Vision for Business Education.

The highlights of this year’s challenge represent 21 examples of how business schools are producing new curriculum, research, programs, and thought leadership. Their collaborative efforts are multidisciplinary, dynamic, and impactful, and AACSB is honored to recognize them.
