Cases and accreditation: come to a workshop

AACSB logo

AACSB Accreditation recognises those business schools that have achieved the highest standards worldwide. But can cases play any role in helping business schools to gain this much-coveted accreditation?

Absolutely, says Tim Mescon, AACSB International's Senior Vice President and Chief Officer for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

qualityKey insights

Tim is running a one-day Cases and Accreditation Workshop for The Case Centre in January 2017 which will offer key insights into the AACSB international accreditation process. Participants will discover the vital contribution that cases can make to the continuous quality improvement and rigorous quality assurance procedures that are vital for recognition by AACSB.

Enormous value

Says Tim: “A key issue facing many business schools today is the recruitment and retention of qualified faculty who research and write in an impactful manner while linking closely with the world of practice.

‘Perhaps no platform suits this model better than case research and writing. AACSB International’s new accreditation standards focus directly on institutional mission and distinctiveness and different pathways, aligned with the business school mission to work towards accreditation. This workshop will explore the enormous value of case research and writing as a powerful tool for faculty scholarship.’

AACSB-accredited schools have the highest-quality faculty, deliver relevant and challenging curriculum, and provide educational and career opportunities that are not found at other business schools. Less than 5% of the more than 16,000 schools worldwide granting business degrees have earned AACSB Accreditation.

quality Says Tim: ‘AACSB-accredited schools produce graduates that are highly skilled and more desirable to employers than other non-accredited schools. This workshop will explain how case writing and teaching can be directly linked to AACSB standards and how case writing aligns with key AACSB international principles.’
