Accreditation volunteer training is for individuals who are interested in assisting AACSB in its accreditation efforts by serving as a mentor, peer review team member, and/or accreditation committee member. The training provides an overview of the different volunteer responsibilities, discusses the philosophies behind the accreditation standards, and provides a detailed description of the accreditation process.
Deans (and similar positions) along with accounting department chairs (or similar positions) from AACSB-accredited schools may attend the training. However, individuals from schools currently pursuing initial accreditation or thinking about pursuing accreditation may also attend, as a way to learn more about the accreditation process from a volunteer perspective.
AACSB accreditation volunteer training is offered onsite in conjunction with other AACSB events, such as conferences, and online through Blackboard. In addition, AACSB offers an on-site mentor training specifically designed for accreditation volunteers who wish to assist schools in preparing for initial accreditation. Mentor training is typically offered in conjunction with AACSB’s Associate Deans Conference.

In contrast to the on-site training, online training can be completed at your convenience. The online training closely mirrors the training offered on-site and can therefore be an alternative to attending one of these sessions. The training addresses all volunteer roles, accreditation processes (initial accreditation and continuous improvement review), and provides guidance that is useful for new and experienced volunteers, including case studies related to issues that may arise when serving as an accreditation volunteer.
This training has been developed for a broad audience and is useful for both volunteers and schools involved in the accreditation journey (both initial and continuous improvement).
