The Accounting Accreditation Process is similar to the Business Accreditation Process, except it focuses on a school’s accounting programs. It also includes a rigorous self-evaluation and peer-review process. The process begins with the submission of an Accounting Eligibility Application, followed by the Initial Accreditation phase. Institutions that earn AACSB Accounting Accreditation also must enter the Continuous Improvement Review process every five years. Currently, 180 member institutions hold AACSB Accreditation in accounting.
