Focus on Research

As discussed by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in its 2020 Guiding Principles and Standards for Business Education, the “defining feature of quality business schools is that they are making a significant difference through educational activities, thought leadership, and engagement with external stakeholders. Quality schools create and disseminate intellectual contributions that have an impact on the theory, practice, and/or teaching of business, and have a positive impact on society.”
