Innovation: the standards must set demanding but realistic thresholds, challenge us to innovate, and inspire educators to pursue continuous improvement. It is key to recognize the importance of experimentation place priority on strategic innovation recognize that innovation involves the potential for success and the risk of failure
AACSB Standards Update What do these themes mean? Impact: focuses on the outcomes of College inputs (human, financial, physical, etc.) AACSB will continue to emphasize Assurance of Learning – review teams expect to see evidence of curricula improvement Production of intellectual contributions that make a positive impact on business theory, teaching, or practice. Impact is concerned with what has been changed, accomplished, or improved
