2021 Innovative Curriculum Conference | AACSB

Assessing Learners' Success

March 8–11, 2021 | Virtual Conference 


 As the higher education landscape becomes more challenging to navigate, business schools struggle to demonstrate excellence and stand out among peer institutions. The Innovative Curriculum Conference will provide new and fresh ideas to innovate business school curricula while offering best practices for successful assessment and continuous improvement.

A diverse range of schools will share strategies for effective assurance of learning and insights for overcoming an environment of intense competition, financial constraints, employer expectations, multiple accreditors, virtual program delivery and diverse technologies. Together, we will think strategically about questions of purpose, positioning, program design and gain guidance through the curriculum redesign and program assessment processes. With so much emphasis on what is next, it is imperative for b-school curricula to focus on the future.
