Wake Forest news for faculty and staff

WFU School of Business recognized for innovation

c0c6ec20e92534614263c82b2596e6542079095eWake Forest University School of Business has been recognized for its innovation in business education by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the global accrediting body and membership association for business schools.

The School is being recognized for its individualized faculty evaluation approach that incorporates a six-path model. This approach energizes and rewards excellence, increases instructional quality and research productivity, and celebrates the strengths of our faculty members.

A field of 299 submissions from 196 universities in 35 countries was narrowed
down to just 30 innovations from 11 countries. Charles Iacovou, Sisel Distinguished
Dean of the School, will represent Wake Forest at the 2016 Deans Conference in
Miami, at the ceremony on February 1.

“We are deeply honored to be recognized by the AACSB for our dedication to global
ingenuity, innovation and creativity,” Iacovou said. “As business schools face greater resource constraints and compete for the best talent, it has become increasingly important to reconceive of how best to design and promote teaching and scholarship excellence. By pursuing a novel faculty path model, our goal was to recognize and value a diversity of passions and skill sets among faculty. This is one of several innovations we are pursuing at Wake to continue to distinguish our
work.”
