About the AACSB Bridge Program

The Post-Doctoral Bridge Program is designed to develop academically qualified faculty to teach in an institution accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). By completing a Post-Doctoral Bridge to Business Program a non-business scholar becomes significantly more competitive when applying for faculty positions at AACSB-accredited business schools.

The University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation's Post-Doctoral Bridge program offers modules on current research in Technology Management, Operations Management, Supply Chain Management along with Marketing, Sales and CRM and Manufacturing disciplines. In our program, we stress the cross functional nature of manufacturing and businesses. Students receive training to be able to teach and do research in areas including:

  • Supply Chain Management
  • Operations Management
  • Technology Management
  • Marketing, Sales and CRM Technologies
  • Information Systems


For the benefit and convenience of participants, the program is delivered through both distance learning and on campus sessions from May, 2015 through July 2015.  It provides in-depth course work in Research Methods, Multivariate Statistical Methods, basic management functions, and seminars/workshops on current research in OM/Manufacturing, Supply Chains, Marketing/CRM and Information Technology, as well as a workshop on teaching approaches in business schools and communication skills. Upon completion of the program, the College of Business and Innovation will remain engaged with participants helping develop student-mentor research projects for more than a year after program completion.

The estimated cost of the 7 week program is $28,000 per participant.

Program fees cover tuition, lodging and meals (breakfast and lunch) for on-campus session days
