About AACSB International

The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools. AACSB-accredited schools have the highest-quality faculty, deliver relevant and challenging curriculum, and provide educational and career opportunities that are not found at other business schools.

AACSB Accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Less than 5 percent of the more than 16,000 schools worldwide granting business degrees have earned AACSB Accreditation. AACSB-accredited schools produce graduates who are highly skilled and more desirable to employers than other non-accredited schools. AACSB-accredited schools have the highest-quality faculty, deliver relevant and challenging curriculum, and provide educational and career opportunities that are not found at other business schools.

Awarded to the SBE in 2014, AACSB International accreditation recognises the School as meeting standards of excellence in its mission statement, exceptional teaching environment, innovative programming and active engagement with industry.

AACSB International accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education and is currently awarded to fewer than 5% of the world’s 15,000 business programmes. It assures students, corporate clients and employers that we carry out globally recognised research and teaching, and that we produce graduates who are ready to perform in today’s demanding global business environment. AACSB accreditation also confirms that we are committed to ongoing improvement to ensure that we will continue to deliver high-quality education.
