John Carroll University’s John M. and Mary Jo Boler School of Business has successfully maintained its accreditation by AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. AACSB Accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education.

Specifically, the Boler School of Business retained its dualAACSB accreditation in business and accounting, a distinction earned by less than five percent of business schools in the world!

Accounting accreditation requires meeting or exceeding an additional set of AACSB standards. The tradition of excellence in Boler’s accountancy program is highlighted by numerous measures of success, including internships, virtually 100% job placement, first-time CPA exam pass rates, as well as service and community engagement. Accountancy students at John Carroll University are highly sought after by employers for their knowledge and character.

“AACSB reaccreditation is a reflection of our outstanding and dedicated faculty and staff, who provide our students with a world-class business education,” said Karen Schuele, Ph.D., dean of the Boler School of Business.  “Our level of teaching excellence, combined with our faculty research and Jesuit Catholic mission, help us do more than just prepare students for their first job—we graduate socially responsible business leaders of tomorrow,” added Schuele.

There are 687 member institutions from nearly 50 countries and territories that are AACSB accredited. Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.  To learn more about AACSB, visit
