AACSB-Accredited schools have the highest quality faculty, 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. Fewer than 5% of the world’s 13,000 business programs have earned AACSB Accreditation.
