Achieving AACSB accreditation is a mission-driven, rigorous process that includes an in-depth assessment of internal activities, mentorship with an AACSB advisor, and a peer-reviewed evaluation focused on continuous improvement. During this multiyear path, schools focus on developing and implementing a plan to achieve their mission and align with AACSB’s accreditation standards. These principles-based standards require excellence in areas relating to strategic management and innovation, research, and teaching and learning.

“Reaching more than 1,000 accredited schools is a milestone to be celebrated,” said Lily Bi, president and CEO of AACSB. “AACSB is elevating the quality of business education around the world, and we believe business schools play a critical role in preparing tomorrow’s leaders to create a lasting, positive impact on society.”
