What is AACSB Accreditation?

AACSB is a specialized credential that business schools use to convey their dedication to graduate business leaders and employ quality faculty members. Business Schools that have AACSB accreditation are required to follow a strict set of standards in order to remain accredited. The association will periodically visit these Business Schools to ensure they are keeping up with the standards. These standards include: Strategic Management, Learning & Teaching, and Academic & Professional Engagement.

The School of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International for its degree programs in Accounting, Public Accountancy, Finance, Management, and Marketing. Additionally, the university is fully accredited by the Board of Regents of the State University of New York and by The Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

In today's highly complex and diverse business environment, management education must prepare students to contribute to their organizations and larger society and to grow personally and professionally throughout their careers. The objective of management education accreditation is to assist collegiate programs to meet these challenges.

Accreditation focuses on the quality of education. Standards set demanding but realistic thresholds, challenging educators to pursue continuous improvement in educational programs. Accreditation per se does not create quality learning experiences. Academic quality is created by the educational standards implemented by individual faculty members in interactions with students. A high-quality degree program is created when students interact with a cadre of faculty in a systematic process supported by an institution. Accreditation observes, recognizes, and motivates educational quality created within the institution.
