AACSB International Accreditation
The College of Business is accredited by AACSB International - the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. This represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Only 5% of business schools globally and 30% of business schools nationally have earned this distinction.
The AACSB seal is your assurance of a high quality education. The AACSB periodically reviews accredited school to assess faculty qualifications, currency of faculty research, program objectives, process of assessing student learning, and strategic direction of the college. AACSB-accredited schools report they have higher student retention and graduation rates, faculty that have higher levels of performance, and graduates with better overall GPAs.
AACSB-accredited schools are committed to delivering the best business education and preparing their graduates to excel from day one of their careers. AACSB accreditation means students will receive relevant knowledge, useful skills, access to employers, challenging courses, and a wealth of resources to help them succeed. While our program is rigorous, our small class sizes allow faculty members to get to know students and provide the kind of interaction that helps students to succeed.
Preparing for a career in business requires attending a business school with engaged faculty, impactful research, relevant and challenging curricula, and the highest standards of quality. AACSB accreditation ultimately improves the quality of our business programs and provides a platform for managing the school, tracking progress, and identifying areas for continuous improvement. Our faculty have high academic credentials and constantly monitor the state of the industry through research, consulting, and collaboration. The result is that we can update the curriculum to reflect real changes in the work world and pair that with a solid academic foundation.
