Deans may continue to be assigned to peer review teams for three years after leaving their position. Exceptions require the approval of AACSB accreditation leadership.
Accreditation Mentor Eligibility
Deans and associate deans (or academics with a terminal degree) or equivalent positions from AACSB-accredited schools are eligible to be mentors. If a school is seeking AACSB accounting accreditation, an accounting chair/head from an AACSB accounting-accredited school may serve as a mentor.

Deans and associate deans may continue to be assigned as mentors for five years after leaving their position. Exceptions require the approval of AACSB accreditation leadership.
AACSB volunteer eligibility is limited to individuals from schools that currently hold AACSB accreditation. Volunteers are asked to let their AACSB staff liaison know as soon as possible should they accept an appointment at a non-AACSB accredited school so that an alternate for their role(s) may be found in a timely manner.
