Recorded Webinar: Initial Self-Evaluation Report (2013 Standards)


Originally presented on 25 June 2019 by two seasoned AACSB volunteers from member organizations, Jacob Chacko, Dean of the College of Business at Clayton State University, and Nitham Hindi, Head of the Department of Accounting and Information Systems, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, and Dean of the College of Business and Economics at Qatar University, this recorded webinar is a practical guide to developing a deeper understanding of the steps following approval of your accreditation eligibility application.

You will learn how to assess your school’s standards alignment, actively engage with your mentor, and ultimately develop the Initial Self-evaluation Report (iSER). You will also learn best practices for engaging the mentor to create a plan to address standard-related gaps and setting expectations among stakeholders.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the purpose and process of developing an initial self-evaluation report, including the “do’s and don’ts”
  2. Gain best practices for working closely with the mentor and setting the right expectations for a supportive relationship

Who Should Attend

Representatives at institutions considering or entering the initial accreditation process, or have yet to submit an initial self-evaluation report, under the 2013 Standards.

Webinar Focus

  • The foundation of AACSB Accreditation and how the iSER report should align with the accreditation standards.
  • The iSER as part of your strategic planning process and your unique mission.
  • The role of the mentor and how to maximize your mentor throughout the 3-5 years of mentorship.

''If your school focuses on how to best utilize the iSER process with the resources AACSB provides, then it will be a smooth and enriching process.''

––––Jacob Chako, Dean, College of Business Clayton State University
