International Accreditation Council for Business Education Annual Conference

IACBE 2022

Business, Economics & Management (General) Educational Administration Entrepreneurship & Innovation International Business

In honor of 25 years of IACBE and our focus on being a premier member organization, we are making this year’s theme “Members’ Choice”.  We hope to encourage a wide range of submissions on subjects that higher education business program professionals are passionate about.  Submissions are welcome from members and nonmembers alike.

The 2022 Annual Conference and Assembly Meeting will be held at the Hilton Orange County/Costa Mesa in Costa Mesa, California, USA, April 4-8, 2022.  We hope the Members’ Choice theme, as part of our overall Moving. Forward. Together. vision, expresses what we hope for 2021, and underpins our belief that excellence in business education requires respecting and valuing the unique characteristics, attributes, and perspectives of all stakeholders in the educational process and results in graduates who possess the knowledge and skills to meet the needs of the future business environment.

The IACBE welcomes proposals for presentations in areas that support excellence in business education. Examples of topics include preparing students to be adaptable and agile in the rapidly changing business environment, ensuring equity, inclusion, and equal access to business education, providing experiential learning opportunities that develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, working with underprepared students, developing socially responsible leaders, integrating a variety of teaching modalities to reach students (on-ground, online, hybrid, other), teaching techniques for specific business topics, or any other topic related to the theme that supports excellence in business education.

In addition to the above topic areas, as a part of the live face-to-face student case competition sponsored in partnership with CapSource, presentations that target topics of interest for students will be considered. Examples of topics include preparing for a job search, deciding on work or grad school, building a five-year plan, or any other topic of interest for students.


We are excited to announce that we have partnered with Peregrine Global Services to again offer the
