MISSION-DRIVEN APPROACHES IN MODERN BUSINESS EDUCATION Book Edited by Brent Smith, PhD (Saint Joseph's University, USA) Call for Chapter Proposals | Extended Deadline: Monday, 10 April 2017 http://www.igi-global.com/publish/call-for-papers/call-details/2595 See attachment for topics covered, submission details, and more. -------------- Overview Business schools and programs often cite a mission that articulates their purpose to a broad range of its stakeholders. That mission often references or reinforces core principles of the overall college or university. The mission can provide guidance on how business school deans, department chairs, and program directors should develop academic offerings and, in turn, promote them to prospective students and employers. Arguably, the mission provides a means to determine the nature and trajectory of faculty hiring, student skills development, and learning-centered outcomes. Today ’s three major accreditation bodies—AACSB, ACBSP, and IACBE— call upon their respective members to demonstrate evidence of how their mission informs and/or influences teaching and learning in their communities. This book will present a variety of perspectives on how mission informs and/or influences academic and administrative approaches to modern business education. We aim to feature contributors who represent diverse perspectives on mission-based approaches in modern business education (e.g., all business disciplines, private liberal arts, public, religiously affiliated, minority serving, research focused, teaching focused, international). We welcome contributions that speak to academic and administrative embodiments of mission at business schools based in the Americas, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. This book will become a respected reference for business school leaders and other stakeholders looking for quality literature about how to foster mission-driven excellence in the 21st Century. ________________________________________________________________________ BRENT SMITH, PHD Associate Professor of Marketing Founding Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Marketing and Sales Education View the Journal | Submit a Manuscript | Become a Reviewer Editor, Mission-Driven Approaches in Modern Business Education View Call for Chapters | Propose a Chapter Saint Joseph's University - Erivan K.
