This informal discussion will give attendees an opportunity to discuss with one another best practices in managing accreditation at their institutions.
Join us for a welcome message from AACSB leadership followed by the opening keynote session. Brian A. Wong, author of "The Tao of Alibaba," offers a compelling look into the dynamic mindset that propelled Alibaba to global prominence, reshaping not just commerce but also assumptions about the role business can play in doing good for society. In a world where change is the only constant, Wong emphasizes the paramount importance of purpose and culture in shaping an organization that elevates adaptability and an innovative mindset over traditional business acumen. Through his keynote, Wong will explore the core principles that define Alibaba's success and discuss how these can transform business education, preparing leaders for the challenges of an unpredictable future. Join us for an enlightening session that bridges the gap between enduring entrepreneurial spirit and academic rigor, equipping the next generation for excellence in a dynamic, ever changing world.

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.
