Benefits of AACSB Accreditation

AACSB has become the gold standard of business-school accreditations, and is the most prestigious, longstanding, and internationally recognized 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, a school and its programs are evaluated against 21 accreditation standards, covering instruction, research, curriculum development, faculty, and student learning. Accreditation typically takes five to seven years to obtain, with reviews every five years thereafter to ensure that the program's level of quality is maintained.
