Prof. Letmathe again appointed to the Innovation Committee of AACSB

The dean of our core faculty, the School of Business and Economics, Professor Dr. Peter Letmathe, was again appointed to the Innovation Committee of the renowned accreditation society Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

"University teaching is facing disruptive changes, not only because of the current corona crisis."

The Innovation Committee aims to enable business education providers and their partners to pursue new opportunities that have a positive impact on the economy and society in a profound, strategic and successful way.

“University teaching is facing disruptive changes, not only because of the current corona crisis. All business schools worldwide are affected by this,” Prof. Letmathe explains. “I am therefore pleased to have been appointed to the Innovation Committee of the esteemed accreditation organization AACSB for the second time. In this committee, I can discuss new contents and technological developments with experts from all over the world. Conversely, the digitization approach and the sophisticated didactic methods of RWTH Aachen University also receive considerable attention.”

The members are appointed annually. Further information can be found on the AACSB homepage.
