IACBE's 20th Anniversary Conference

IACBE is contributor organization that helps lead colleges and universities to a higher level of academic performance. Its accreditation program offers the opportunity to think more systematically about the business school model and raise curriculum quality to ensure students are gaining the most from their education. The 20th Anniversary Conference in San Francisco brought together a wide range of business colleges to share ideas on how to foster business education.

IACBE defines themselves as... "The International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE) is the leading outcomes-based accrediting organization for business, management, and accounting programs in student-centered colleges, universities, and other higher education institutions throughout the world. The IACBE exists to promote and recognize excellence in business education."

Attending colleges learned about retention strategies, assessment, innovation in business education, learning methods, faculty evaluation, entrepreneurship and much more. The conference venue fostered a collaborative environment where university leadership meet and discussed new ideas and concepts. They shared their ideas and learned about what worked, and what didn't, at other colleges around the world.

Keynote speakers were also present to discuss the important business and social issues. Jennifer Kushell, the founder and CEO of Your Success Now, discussed inspiring young students to follow their own career paths and achieve success. Dr. John L. Green, Founder and President Emeritus of IACBE, came out to share some interesting "tid bits" about the organization.

These conferences help practitioners gain new knowledge of what is trending at business schools around the country. They also encourage greater knowledge of business school operations and the development of better methods of helping students learn. As this knowledge is gained from attendance it is brought back to their respective universities to make meaningful improvements.
