AACSB Accreditation Standards
The AACSB Accreditation Standards were first adopted in 1919. Throughout the years, the standards have continued to be revised to ensure quality and continuous improvement in collegiate business education. In 2010, the AACSB Accreditation Standards were revised, as well as the surrounding processes and documentation requirements. The latest revision occurred in 2013 after more than two years of study and collaboration with the global management education community and employer organizations.
