AACSB is committed to providing a safe environment for event attendees, volunteers, members, and staff globally. In response to COVID-19, and to protect the health of all involved, the Annual Accreditation Conference: Europe, Middle East, and Africa has been canceled.  AACSB offers a number of digital learning options with many more in development.  Please visit the digital learning page for a current listing of opportunities.  


Attending the Annual Accreditation Conference: Europe, Middle East, and Africa is a unique opportunity to learn and understand the AACSB Accreditation Standards while gaining insight into the latest trends in these regions. Discover the challenges schools in these areas face regarding accreditation and formulate solutions that will help the accreditation community worldwide. Network with peers, connect with experienced quality assurance managers, meet with accreditation staff, and exchange ideas and best practices with professionals from around the world at this AACSB event.

If your initial accreditation visit or continuous improvement review is coming up, or you’re simply interested in learning about accreditation through a new perspective, you will find the ideal blend of learning and networking opportunities at this conference.

Who Should Attend

Deans, associate/assistant deans, accreditation managers and quality assurance coordinators, department chairs, faculty, those interested in pursuing AACSB Accreditation, those with initial accreditation or continuous improvement review visits coming up in the next few years, and those interested in pursuing partnerships and collaborations with schools in Europe, Middle East, or Africa.

The Annual Accreditation Conference (EMEA) brings together accreditation specialists, faculty members and deans from institutions around the EMEA region. This provides an excellent, and focused, way for those interested in AACSB accreditation to meet like-minded souls from institutions that will have much in common with their own.
