This seminar will take place at Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. The seminar will begin at 8:30 a.m. and will conclude at 5:00 p.m. A social networking session will immediately follow the seminar (5:15-6:00 p.m.). This seminar is taking place just prior to the American Accounting Association's Annual Meeting

Less than 25 percent of AACSB-accredited schools have supplemental accounting accreditation.

Explore the accounting accreditation process with this in-depth overview facilitated by a facilitator with years of experience as an AACSB peer reviewer and accreditation committee member. The seminar will cover the 2018 accounting accreditation standards, including requirements such as criteria for faculty qualifications and assurance of learning (AoL). The seminar will also introduce the 2020 business accreditation standards.

After you have an understanding of the standards, you will learn about the initial and continuous improvement review (CIR) process; the key committees, such as the Accounting Accreditation Committee (AAC) and the Continuous Improvement Review Committee (CIRC); and peer review team involvement. You will also learn about common pitfalls in the accreditation process, particularly the deficiencies most often noted by CIR peer review team members.

Go through sections of the standards for hands-on experience focusing on three main areas: Strategic Management and Innovation; Learning and Teaching; and Academic and Professional Engagement and Interactions. By the end of the seminar, you will be confident about what is necessary for a successful AACSB accounting accreditation peer team visit and will have a peer network for future support. Those interested in seeking initial supplemental accreditation will be introduced to the process.
