AACSB's Bridge Program is an immersive course offering the knowledge, techniques, and resources that shape the business professionals of the future. You will learn what it takes to teach college students pursuing a business education in a globalized world, and how to model the role of a faculty member.

This program is designed to model college teaching best practices and state of the art understandings of how adults learn. To that end, this program uses immersive, active and experiential learning, best practices, peer-to-peer practice and feedback, lectures, individual applications, individual reflections, authentic course documents, group activities, templates and insights from Master Teachers (via digital assets). The Capstone Event is an opportunity on Day Five for every participant to offer a 15-minute teaching and to receive 10- to 15-minutes of feedback from peers.
