Business Accreditation Seminar (Bangkok)
New Format! Explore the accreditation standards through an immersive case study.
The Business Accreditation Seminar has undergone a significant transformation in its format! Experienced facilitators will lead you through an immersive case study, enabling you to enhance your skills by actively exploring the accreditation standards and their practical application to a case institution.
Focusing on the 2020 AACSB accreditation standards, the seminar will provide you with the knowledge and resources to avoid common challenges in the accreditation process. Learn what is important and expected at each stage of the accreditation process through thoughtful group interactions as you explore the standards with a hands-on approach.
Please note this seminar requires pre-work before each day of the seminar. There is a total of about four hours to read and prepare for the cases used in the seminar.
