An interesting discussion on the AACSB's website:
Much of that would be broader than the issues this IG addresses, but it does seem relevant.
A good question, is research in "top tier" journals that are not read by practitioners (and often not actually read by many academics) having any impact? Can they really be considered top tier? How do you measure impact beyond citation count?
More pertinent to PACE, what is one idea that PACE might be able to implement to help bridge to a more impactful academy in accounting and finance?
