Harvard Business School, Yale School of Management and the Boler School of Business… what’s the common link? AACSB Accreditation.
As the largest, oldest, and most prestigious accrediting agency in the field of business, The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) offers the “gold standard” for certification. AACSB confers its accreditation on approximately 25% of business schools in the United States, but only 11% of business programs in the U.S. hold accreditation at the undergraduate and graduate levels plus maintain the independent Accountancy accreditation. Outside the U.S., AACSB accredits business programs across 40 different countries. All together, only 5% of the business programs in the world meet AACSB dual accreditation standards for quality.
The Boler School of Business maintains this dual accreditation, placing the school in the top 11% of the business programs in the United States and the top 5% of business programs in the world.
AACSB accreditation is important because it ensures that students receive education from faculty who are certified, current experts in their field within a business curriculum designed for current and future economic challenges. This means that employers invest in graduates who will have the knowledge and problem-solving skills that add value to an organization in a meaningful way.
