Less than 25% of AACSB-accredited schools have supplemental accounting accreditation. Join a cohort of your peers in two live lessons facilitated by globally recognized accounting accreditation experts. Network and build skills virtually in this interactive seminar. Explore the accounting accreditation process with this in-depth overview presented by facilitators with years of experience as AACSB peer reviewers and accreditation committee members. The seminar will cover the 2018 accounting accreditation standards, including requirements such as criteria for faculty qualifications and Assurance of Learning (AoL). The seminar will also introduce the 2020 business accreditation standards. After you have an understanding of the standards, you will learn about the initial and continuous improvement review (CIR) process, the key committees, such as the Accounting Accreditation Committee (AAC) and the Continuous Improvement Review Committee (CIRC); and peer review team involvement. Go through sections of the standards for hands-on experience focusing on three main areas: Strategic Management and Innovation; Learning and Teaching; and Academic and Professional Engagement and Interactions. By the end of the seminar, you will be confident about what is necessary for a successful AACSB Accounting Accreditation peer team visit and will have a peer network for future support. Those interested in seeking initial supplemental accreditation will be introduced to the process.
