Map Unavailable

Date/Time
12 March 2017 - 14 March 2017

Location
Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel

As the higher education landscape becomes more challenging to navigate, business schools struggle to demonstrate excellence and stand out among peer institutions. Consequently, the business education industry has placed a renewed emphasis on accountability and impact in assessment. To respond to this development, we must reinforce that assessment and impact are even more important and make them a driving force throughout our institutions.

The Assessment and Impact Conference is your opportunity to explore current trends and global best practices, network with peers and experienced accreditation volunteers, and get a glimpse at what peer institutions are doing to stay current in impact and assurance of learning (AoL).

Whether your institution has recently begun the assessment process, measuring impact, or is looking to take your AoL systems to the next level, this conference offers ample opportunities to gather new knowledge and insight to put a strong assessment system and impact framework into place.
