BSIS Impact Series


How are you demonstrating your school’s impact to your stakeholders, regional & national authorities, students and strategic partners?

How do you collect data and identify the tangible and intangible benefits you bring to your region?

Last but not least, how can you create a sense of pride and keep staff proud of their mission while confirming their motivation?

Since its creation in 2012, the Business School Impact System (BSIS) has come a long way in its journey of self-realisation. The initial idea – to help schools communicate their positive impact to their local environment – characterises BSIS as an effective assessment tool. However, over the years, the benefit of the impact assessment system positions BSIS more and more as a development tool. By identifying key strengths and opportunities for development in line with a school’s historical identity, the system provides schools with a strategic developmental direction.

Moreover, BSIS helps schools think through the challenges linked to their effective differentiation. Thanks to BSIS, a school can showcase its distinctiveness and highlight its differences in terms of positioning.

Our aim in the following BSIS Impact Series is to showcase the distinctiveness and diversity of business schools who went through the BSIS process, and who will share with you the initiatives they developed, each linked to one of the BSIS impact dimensions.

We look forward to inviting you to this conversation with business schools – some may revolve around the intellectual impact, some around the impact within the regional ecosystem and some stories will reveal interesting initiatives, such as creating a position of a Chief Impact Officer.
