AACSB Insights publishes articles on 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.
AACSB Insights 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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on submitting to this blog.
Articles on AACSB Insights provide thought leadership on topics of interest to the business education community. We seek articles on 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). Submissions should aim to help other schools or organizations improve by sharing new ideas or best practices. They should include concrete examples of effective practices or helpful suggestions for how schools can improve on programs or initiatives, or work toward an ideal future state.
The objective of a submission cannot be to promote any one program, organization, initiative, or person. However, mention of these things can be included in the article to help illustrate a point. If a submission has copy that you would include in a promotional brochure, it likely is not right for our platform.
Many of the articles published on AACSB Insights 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 an 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 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 AACSB Insights, contributing authors may post the finalized article to their own content platform or that of an affiliated school/organization (e.g., LinkedIn article, school/organization blog or newsroom, other professional blog or magazine), provided the following attribution is included, with a hyperlink to the article: This post originally appeared on AACSB Insights.
Contributed content is eligible for reposting on AACSB’s partner websites as part of a content-sharing agreement. Authors may request in writing to have their contributions excluded from consideration. A list of AACSB’s strategic partners is available at aacsb.edu/about/who-we-are/collaborations.
