  • What internal, environmental, or competitive forces challenge the applicant’s future?
  • What opportunities exist for enhancing the applicant’s degree offerings?
  • What degree programs are included in the accreditation review, and what is the number of graduates in the previous year for each program?

2. Mission Statement: A statement that includes all degree programs defined in the scope of accreditation.

3. Strategic Management Planning Process (no more than two pages): A description of the strategic management planning process of the applicant.

Assessment Tools and Procedures: A brief statement of learning goals for each degree program, along with a list of the assessment tools, procedures, and results used to demonstrate progress toward an achievement of the mission. What are the most recent outcomes from the assessments, and what is the impact on the program offerings relative to Assurance of Learning?

5. Financial Strategies: Description of the school’s action items and financial plans to achieve the school’s action items. This should include anticipated sources and timing of funding (see Standards 4 and 5 for definition and interpretation).

  • A brief description of the employer or employment needs to be served by the program

  • A description of the learning goals, how the goals are measured, and results that demonstrate achievement.

personal experiences observations
Personal Experiences & Observations
  • Hire a consultant before the visit
    • Provides an unbiased outside view of things
    • Can assist in finding errors or omissions
  • Get to know the visit team
    • Communicate early and often
    • Invite them to visit campus beforehand
    • Build a good relationship
  • Don’t try to hide shortcomings/problems
  • Be open and honest with the team
  • Get everyone on board (faculty, staff, students)
  • Develop a timeline or plan for the visit
personal experiences observations19
Personal Experiences & Observations
  • View the visit and the MAC process as positive
    • AACSB wants schools to be reaccredited
    • This is NOT an initial visit—they assume your school is doing what it needs to/should be doing
  • Take the visit team’s recommendations as constructive
    • The team just reports on findings, it does not reaccredit – the MAC committee does that
    • View the process as continuous improvement
    • Share your best practices with others & learn from them
