The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business
Home / Business Schools / Accrediting bodies / AACSB
Founded in 1916 by a consortium of 16 schools, including Columbia University, Dartmouth College, and Harvard University, AACSB International's members established the first set of standards for business schools. Today, the distinctive AACSB International Seal of Accreditation represents the highest standards achieved by the world's most respected business schools and confirms their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive peer review.
High standards
The AACSB accreditation standards ensure that master's level students learn to:
  • lead organizations
  • apply knowledge in new and unfamiliar circumstances
  • adapt and innovate to solve problems, cope with unforeseen events, and manage in unpredictable environments
  • evaluate and challenge ideas
  • demonstrate knowledge of theories, models, and tools relevant to their specialty field
  • apply appropriate advanced theories, models and tools to solve business problems
By choosing an AACSB-accredited school, students can be sure they have access to high-quality faculty, continually updated curricula, and real-world relevance that prepares them for the job market. Prospective employers know that graduates of schools accredited by AACSB are prepared to perform.
How does AACSB accreditation work?
It is important to understand that application of AACSB International's 21 accreditation standards is based on the stated mission of each institution. While standards must be met, they are flexible enough to be applied to a wide variety of business schools in many locations with different missions. It takes between three and seven years for a school to go through the entire AACSB International accreditation process.
AACSB International has accredited more than 550 schools in over 30 countries around the world. Within this group of schools, there are many diverse approaches to business education. Accreditation assures prospective students that each school has a clearly defined mission, a faculty that is engaged in research and/or professional development, and clearly defined learning objectives and processes in place to measure whether or not students are achieving those objectives. Furthermore, all accredited schools must annually review their own operations to ensure they are in line with their long-term strategic plan.
The student's viewpoint
From a student's perspective, mission-based accreditation emphasizes the importance of conducting thorough research when going through the school selection process. While accreditation is an assurance that the school can deliver a quality education, it is incumbent upon the student to see if the mission of the school matches his/her goals and objectives.
Accreditation also ensures that students prepare to confront the challenges of a global economy, conflicting values, changing technology and demographic diversity - issues that every business leader will face.
AACSB-accredited business schools prepare students to address these challenges and lead organizations in an increasingly complex world.
Institutions with AACSB International business and accounting accreditation confirm their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive peer review process.
AACSB's accreditation maintenance review process
Every five years, AACSB-accredited schools are required to undergo an accreditation maintenance review. The emphasis of this review is on strategic management and continuous improvement within the context of the established mission. For example, expectations for meeting faculty qualification standards would be different for a school offering only undergraduate programs than for a school which also offers research-intensive doctoral programs. Additionally, some schools prepare their students for business integral to the local community, while others may focus more on the global economy.
In addition to accrediting business schools and accounting programs worldwide, AACSB provides professional development for the business education community, conducting a wide array of conferences and seminars at various locations throughout the world.
AACSB International supports a base of more than 1,000 constituents who, through membership status, have access to special reports on the business education industry, discounts to conferences and seminars, a bimonthly magazine,monthly electronic newsletter and other benefits.
