VIT Business School, Vellore Institute of Technology and 11 institutions have earned AACSB accreditation Recently AACSB International (AACSB) announced that American University of the Middle East; California State University, San Marcos; Chang Jung Christian University; Chiang Mai University; Deusto Business School, University of Deusto; Dominican University of California; Koc University; Politecnico di Milano School of Management, Politecnico Milano; Pontificia Universidad Javeriana Cali; Royal Holloway, University of London; and VIT Business School, Vellore Institute of Technology have earned accreditation in business.
For over 100 years, AACSB accreditation has represented the highest standard of quality in business education in the world. As the longest-serving and largest business education network, AACSB connects lifelong learners, educators, and businesses worldwide. Through today’s ratification a total of 901 institutions across 58 countries and territories have earned AACSB accreditation in business. Furthermore, 189 institutions maintain supplemental AACSB accreditation for their accounting programs.
“AACSB accreditation recognizes institutions that have demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curriculum development, and student learning,” said Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB. “We congratulate each of the newly accredited institutions for earning this respected honor.”
Achieving accreditation is a process of rigorous internal focus, engagement with an AACSB-assigned mentor, and peer-reviewed evaluation. During this multiyear path, schools focus on developing and implementing a plan to align with AACSB’s accreditation standards. These standards require excellence in areas relating to strategic management and innovation; student, faculty, and staff as active participants; learning and teaching; and academic and professional engagement.
“The commitment to earning accreditation is a true reflection of a school’s dedication—not only to their students, alumni network, and greater business community, but to the higher education industry as a whole,” said Bryant. “Today’s students are tomorrow’s business leaders, and the addition of these 11 institutions to the network of AACSB-accredited business schools will have a lasting positive impact, both locally and globally.” Source: PR News Wire
