The purpose of this research is to develop and implement a project action plan. The acceleration program of academic ranks is implemented as an effort to improve the quality of lecturers. This study was conducted at a private university in Surabaya, Indonesia, in the faculty of economics and business. The researcher collected data by distributing open questionnaires and facilitating focus group discussions. The results of the data analysis show that academic ranks in this faculty are low. The proportion of academic ranks is 40% Instructor, 35% Assistant Professor, 13% Associate Professor, 4% Professor, and the rest are undefined. 70% of Lecturers are not promoted in academic rank for more than ten years. Most lecturers do not increase academic rank because of a lack of scientific publications and complicated institutional bureaucracy. The researcher has arranged a procedure to accelerate the rise of academic rank which involved Deans, the Acceleration Team, and lecturers. A lecturer must have creative and innovative thinking in learning and research to be able to achieve high academic rankings. Creativity in learning models and innovation in research will have significant benefits for the community.
