Research good enough to eat

The snappily titled global bized accreditor AACSB* includes two Aus unis on its “innovations that inspire” list

Deakin U is there for its Centre for Refugee Employment, Advocacy, Training and Education.  And UNSW’s Tax Clinic is applauded, for research “to identify systemic issues faced by financially vulnerable cohorts and advocate for reform.”

But the winner for fun has to be the University of Agder (in Norway) for a field study in conjunction with an ice cream maker, “challenging prevailing perceptions of dull business research.” A case where more research was probably welcomed.

* AACSB stands for the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, a name no amount of ice cream could make appealing.
