The W. A. Franke College of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. We go through the reaccreditation process every five years.
AACSB-accredited schools have the highest-quality faculty, deliver relevant and challenging curriculum, and provide educational and career opportunities that are not found at other business schools.
AACSB Accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Less than 5% of the more than 16,000 schools worldwide granting business degrees have earned AACSB Accreditation. AACSB-accredited schools produce graduates that are highly skilled and more desirable to employers than other non-accredited schools.
AACSB provides internationally recognized, specialized accreditation for business and accounting programs at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral level. The AACSB Accreditation Standards challenge post-secondary educators to pursue excellence and continuous improvement throughout their business programs. AACSB Accreditation is known, worldwide, as the longest standing, most recognized form of specialized/professional accreditation an institution and its business programs can earn.
In June 2016, AACSB celebrated its 100th birthday at the closing bell of the New York Stock Exchange. As the longest serving global association dedicated to advancing management education worldwide, AACSB accredits 761 of the world’s best business schools across 52 countries and territories.
