Assessment and Impact Conference

March 19–21, 2020 | Houston, Texas, USA CANCELED 

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 Assessment and Impact Conference has been canceled.

As the higher education landscape becomes more challenging to navigate, business schools struggle to demonstrate excellence and stand out among peer institutions. Consequently, the business education industry has placed a renewed emphasis on accountability and impact in assessment. To respond to this development, we must reinforce that assessment and impact are even more important, making them a driving force throughout our institutions. What does assessment look like at its best?

The Assessment and Impact Conference goes beyond assessment mechanics to focus on effective continuous improvement. This is your opportunity to network with experienced accreditation volunteers and get a glimpse at what peer institutions are doing to push the envelope and improve pedagogy and curriculum. Join us to explore current trends and global best practices, strategies that will integrate administrative efforts across the college, and solutions for the complex and nuanced challenges of assurance of learning (AoL).

Whether your institution has recently begun the assessment process, is measuring impact, or is looking to take your AoL systems to the next level, this conference offers ample opportunities to gather new knowledge and insight to put a streamlined assessment system and strong impact framework into place.
