This qualitative study examines the complex issue of a multi-campus business school charged with the goal of accreditation. A review of the literature is followed with survey insights from 22 business school Deans with multi-campus experience, analyzed using constant comparative analysis to seek solution for three central issues (1) to increase the proportion of full-time faculty; (2) encourage scholarship; and (3) foster multi-campus relations. The key findings suggest the central roles of leadership to motivate all constituents, funding, articulation of expectations, and degree for branch autonomy.
