An AACSB International member institution offering undergraduate and/or graduate degrees in business may voluntarily apply for AACSB Business Accreditation. The AACSB Accreditation Process includes rigorous self-evaluation and peer-review elements. The process begins with the submission and approval of an Eligibility Application. Once a school’s Eligibility Application has been approved, it will enter the PreAccreditation phase. If a school is able to meet all of AACSB’s Accreditation Standards and completes the PreAccreditation requirements, it will be recommended for Initial Accreditation. All AACSB-accredited institutions must enter the Continuous Improvement Review process every five years.
