Societal Impact Awards
Recognizing outstanding approaches and achievements in business education.
Societal Impact Awards Focus
Business schools and business are a force for good in society. Through their activities, b-schools have the opportunity to make a difference to society and to address significant issues at a local, national, or international scale.
We seek to recognize outstanding approaches or achievements in business education that are having a positive impact in their community or in society more broadly. SBAA is aligning this award with both the AACSB Collective Vision for Business Education and the AACSB 2020 Standards for Business Accreditation which call for business schools to be a force for good. As such, we seek to recognize innovative strategies or programs that have a significant positive societal impact.
The awards include cash prizes for the winners. There will normally be two award winners ($1,000 each). The winners will register for and attend the 2023 Annual Meeting of the SBAA (November 12-14, 2023) where they will present their work and receive their awards.
To be eligible for consideration, a submission must meet the following criteria.
