Accounting Accreditation

Earning AACSB’s supplemental accounting accreditation signifies a business school’s commitment to strategic management, learner success, thought leadership, and societal impact.

Continuous Improvement Review

Accounting Accreditation

The AACSB continuous improvement review process is conducted every six years and creates an ongoing focus of continuous improvement. This signals that an AACSB-accredited institution has documented continuous improvements in support of its stated mission and strategic management plan to sustain AACSB accreditation status.

Three years prior to the continuous improvement review, each institution is asked to submit a CIR application to initiate the continuous improvement review process.

In the year of review, the Continuous Improvement Review Report, organized around the themes of the accreditation standards engagement, innovation, and impact, as well as the three areas of the accounting accreditation standards, should be submitted.

Documents should be completed, saved, and submitted via myAccreditation by the predetermined due dates. If you have any questions, contact your AACSB accreditation staff liaison.

For business accreditation please see business-specific CIR documents.
