As part of AACSB International's ongoing commitment to business education worldwide, the DataDirect survey, benchmarking, and report system was created to enhance both data collection and reporting. One of the main features of this system is the ability for schools to use custom comparison groups with the provided tools to benchmark and track their school's data alongside their chosen comparison groups. There are a number of different benchmarking tools within DataDirect. Each has been designed to meet different data needs for system users. All of the benchmarking tools are used in conjunction with these comparison groups.
Business School Questionnaire (BSQ) * • Staff Compensation & Demographics Survey (SCDS) * • Accounting Programs Questionnaire (APQ) * • Innovations That Inspire • Collaborations Survey
An official representative or an official designee at an AACSB member school has full access to DataDirect.
The official representative or official designee may authorize additional various access levels for other individuals at AACSB member schools, through the administration user setup tool or by emailing a request to:firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individuals without access to DataDirect may request that AACSB staff generate custom data sets for research purposes. Contact DataDirect for additional information.
* Only schools that participated in the most recent Staff Compensation & Demographics Survey, Business School Questionnaire, or Accounting Programs Questionnaire are eligible for the full benchmarking access to the items from the surveys completed.
