  • Each school/program is responsible for securing approval (if required by their university) for conducting research involving human subjects from the appropriate campus office, prior to implementing our MBA Lifecycle surveys. The body that grants approval for such surveys on your campus may be referred to as an Institutional (or Internal) Review Board, Human Subjects Committee, Grant Review Board, Research Review Board, or something similar.

    Many campuses will determine that the MBA Lifecycle survey(s) presents minimal risk to the participants and grant an exemption or offer an expedited review of the project. Other campuses will require a full review of your proposed research with the MBA Lifecycle survey. Whatever the case, you are responsible for securing internal IRB approval for the MBA Lifecycle questionnaires and any additional questions you are providing to Percept Research for custom questions.

    For reference, we adhere to these standards and policies:
