    EXCITEMENT AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS WITH THEIR
    COLLEAGUES.

Getting real about accreditation!
  • AACSB accreditation standards are applied by
    teams of deans assigned to the school seeking
    accreditation, reaffirmation or extension

18
RECOMMENDATIONS
  • Taking ethics and law seriously means
  • having foundational courses in ethics and in law
  • taught by fulltime college of business faculty
    members
  • who work with faculty in the other business
    disciplines
  • to ensure that the ethical decision-making (that
    permeates all aspects of business) is reinforced
    across the business curriculum.

19
Providing best practices info
  • AACSBs Ethics Resource Center (web)
  • Enhanced regularly
  • AACSB could sponsor a Best practice study of
    collegiate ethics and law curricula -- similar to
    methodology used by the American Productivity and
    Quality Center (APQC)
