The AACSB Blog shares insights on recent and ongoing topics affecting business schools, higher education, and businesses globally. We publish perspectives from leading voices in business education, the latest business school data and research, current thoughts in business practice, and more.
The AACSB Blog is global in reach and is targeted to several primary audiences: business school administrators, business educators, and business practitioners (HR, recruiting, and training/development professionals). Secondary audiences include other higher education leaders and academics in complementary disciplines.
AACSB also hosts the Best Business Schools Blog, which shares thoughts, insight, perspective, advice, and experience with prospective students of all ages, in all stages of their educational pursuits. Contact us at email@example.com for more information on submitting to this blog.
We seek article topics that adhere to AACSB’s organizational values of quality (of business programs), diversity and inclusion, a global mindset, ethics, social responsibility, and community. Ideally submissions will fit into our Editorial Calendar with designated themes and areas of focus for each month; however, we will also consider submissions outside of these areas, particularly if the topic coincides with current trends and events in business education.
The objective of the article must be to provide a perspective on an issue relevant to business education or to business (as it relates to business education); the objective cannot be to promote any one program, organization, initiative, or person. However, mention of these things can be included in the article where relevant.
Many of the articles published on the AACSB Blog are contributed by members of our Business Education Alliance—business school deans, administrators, and faculty; business members; and strategic partners and collaborators. We also have an editorial team dedicated to providing quality coverage of global business education topics and trends. Occasionally we work with freelance writers with specialized knowledge and influence in the business education community.
The suggested length for a blog article is 800 to 1,500 words. Contributors should consider using subheadings and/or bulleted or numerated lists for organization, visual appeal, and reader engagement.
All quotes or ideas that are not the author’s (and not commonly known to the audience) must be cited by naming the person quoted and/or including a publicly available URL for the source of the idea shared. Footnotes or other reference lists are not used in blog articles.
We request that authors submit a high-quality photo along with a brief bio (one or two sentences max), to include at the end of the article. Creative imagery to accompany the article will be selected by the editorial staff solely, unless directly relevant, high-quality imagery is provided by the author. If you have data visualizations to accompany your article, such as graphs, charts, etc., we will likely reformat them in our brand colors and style.
We will contact you within two weeks of receiving your submission. We may accept your submission as is, we may ask for revisions, or we may inform you that the submission is not the right fit for our publication. Possible reasons a submission would not be accepted include the following: the topic is not appropriate for our audience, we already have articles covering the topic of your submission, or the format or style is not appropriate for our publication.
Articles are regularly included in AACSB’s weekly email newsletter, AACSB LINK, as well as shared on the association’s social media channels. Contributors are also highly encouraged to share the article among their networks.
Once the article is published on the AACSB Blog, contributing authors may post the finalized blog article to their own content platform (e.g., LinkedIn article, school/organization blog, other professional blog), provided the following attribution is included, with a hyperlink to the article: This post originally appeared on the AACSB Blog.
