The Benefit of an AACSB-Accredited School

AACSB has become the gold standard of business-school accreditations, and is the most prestigious, longest-standing, internationally known accreditation available for schools of business. To be one of the elite AACSB accredited business schools is to be part of an established tradition of excellence.

A W. P. Carey School degree backed by AACSB accreditation gives you a distinct competitive advantage in your career. In order to obtain AACSB accreditation, instruction, research, curriculum development, faculty, and student learning are assessed against 21 accreditation standards. Typically, accreditation takes five to seven years, with reviews every five years thereafter to ensure that the program's level of quality is maintained.
