AACSB Accreditation and Possible Unintended Consequences: A Deming View
Stepanovich, Paul; Mueller, James; Benson, Dan
Journal of Education for Business, v89 n2 p103-109 2014
The AACSB accreditation process reflects basic quality principles, providing standards and a process for feedback for continuous improvement. However, implementation can lead to unintended negative consequences. The literature shows that while institutionalism and critical theory have been used as a theoretical base for evaluating accreditation, W. E. Deming's philosophy has not. This article fills that void by examining possible negative consequences in meeting faculty qualification requirements in institutions with a teaching mission.
