AACSB announces that seven business schools have extended their global accreditation in business.

Tampa, Fla., USA (October 21, 2022)AACSB International (AACSB) announces today that seven business schools have extended their accreditation in business.

For more than a century, AACSB accreditation has been synonymous with the highest standards in business education. Today, a total of 954 institutions across 59 countries and territories have earned AACSB accreditation in business. Furthermore, 193 institutions maintain supplemental AACSB accreditation for their accounting programs.

“AACSB congratulates each institution on their achievement,” said Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB. “Every AACSB-accredited school has demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curricula development, and student learning. The intense peer-review process exemplifies their commitment to quality business education.”

Achieving accreditation is a process of rigorous internal focus, engagement with an AACSB-assigned mentor, and peer-reviewed evaluation. During this multiyear path, schools focus on developing and implementing a plan to align with AACSB’s accreditation standards. These standards require excellence in areas relating to strategic management and innovation; student, faculty, and staff as active participants; learning and teaching; and academic and professional engagement.

As ratified by the AACSB International board of directors, the following schools have extended or achieved their accreditation in business or accounting:
