Continuous Improvement Review
The AACSB continuous improvement review process is conducted every five years and creates an ongoing focus of continuous improvement. This signals that an AACSB-accredited institution has documented continuous improvements in support of its stated mission and strategic management plan to sustain AACSB accreditation status.
Two years prior to the continuous improvement review, each institution is asked to submit a CIR application to initiate the continuous improvement review process.
In the year of review, the Continuous Improvement Review Report, organized around the themes of the accreditation standards engagement, innovation, and impact, as well as the three areas of the accounting accreditation standards, should be submitted.
For business accreditation please see business-specific CIR documents.
