Eligibility Application

Stock - SigningThe AACSB Accounting Accreditation Eligibility Application process is similar to the business version. It entails the submission of an Eligibility Application and supporting documents (as outlined below). The objective of this process is to determine if a school is eligible to pursue AACSB Accounting Accreditation.

Schools are encouraged to provide a draft of their Eligibility Application to AACSB staff for review. AACSB staff will check for completeness and any potential concerns that may arise. Once the Eligibility Application is complete the Accounting Accreditation Committee (AAC) will review the application, if approved, a mentor will be assigned to the help guide the school through the Initial Accreditation Process.

Institutions may apply simultaneously for Business and Accounting Accreditation. However, if done separately, a school must have already earned Business Accreditation to pursue AACSB Accounting Accreditation.


For those considering completing an eligibility application, see an outline of the application below.

If you would like to initiate the accounting eligibility application process, please submit an Accreditation Inquiry Form.  AACSB Staff will contact you regarding your application.
