International Teaching Excellence Award

ACBSP is the only specialized accrediting body for business schools that presents an award recognizing excellence in teaching that is open to the entire membership.


The Teaching Excellence Award competition begins at the regional level. Once submitted to the ACBSP office, the applications are sent to each regional president. A committee review follows and each region names two recipients - one from among associate degree applicants, and one from among all baccalaureate/graduate degree applicants. The Teaching Excellence Award recipients for each of the 10 regions are encouraged to attend the annual conference, where they will receive a waiver of conference fees, regional recognition, a medallion, and a $250 check from ACBSP.


The International Teaching Excellence Award recipients will be honored at the "Salute to Regions” luncheon at the ACBSP Annual Conference, where they will each be presented with an engraved crystal award and a check for $500. The recipients are selected from among the regional recipients for that year. One award is presented to an individual from an associate degree institution and one to an individual from a baccalaureate/graduate degree institution.


Teaching faculty at ACBSP member institutions are eligible to apply. Any individual may also nominate an eligible faculty member. The applicant must be teaching at a member institution at the time of the award decision at the Regional (March 15) and International (June 1) levels. Full eligibilty requirements are outlined in the application.


The application deadline for the 2017-18 academic year is December 15, 2017. Two international award recipients will be named at the Salute to Regions Luncheon at ACBSP Conference 2018.
