The AACSB accreditation standards are intentionally non-prescriptive, recognizing diversity across institutions. The principles-based standards are meant to encourage advancement and achievement of a school’s self-defined mission. However, principles-based standards do not mean “anything goes”! In fact, these standards place the onus on the school to clearly articulate its mission and how it meets the standards in a coherent and thoughtful manner. Join this interactive session to discuss what review teams and committees are looking for and what they are not, address common myths, and clear any misconceptions about AACSB’s standards and processes.
