On-site Accreditation Volunteer Training is for individuals who are interested in assisting AACSB in its accreditation work by serving as a mentor, peer review team member, and/or accreditation committee member. The training provides an overview of the different volunteer responsibilities, discusses the philosophies behind the accreditation standards, and provides a detailed description of the accreditation process. The training should be seen as an overview and introduction to volunteer duties. The actual learning is done when the first assignment is accepted. This training is often offered in conjunction with other AACSB on-site events and is specifically useful for deans and associate deans (or similar positions) of AACSB-accredited institutions.
In addition, AACSB offers on-site Mentor Training specifically designed for accreditation volunteers who wish to assist schools in preparing for initial accreditation. Mentor training is typically offered in conjunction with AACSB’s Associate Deans Conference.

In contrast to the on-site training, online training can be completed at your convenience. The online training closely mirrors the training offered on-site and can therefore be an alternative to attending one of these sessions. The training addresses all volunteer roles, accreditation processes (initial accreditation and continuous improvement review) and provides guidance that is useful for new and experienced volunteers, including case studies related to issues that may arise when serving as an accreditation volunteer. This training has been developed for a broad audience and is useful not only for volunteers, but also for schools involved in the accreditation process (both initial and continuous improvement).
