With more than 15,000 business programs worldwide from which to choose, how do you choose a degree program that will provide you with the skills and knowledge to succeed in the global business world, as well as offer long-term career opportunities after graduation? Look for a University that is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International).

AACSB International advances quality business education worldwide through its rigorous and relevant accreditation process. A strong differentiator, business programs that are AACSB-accredited produce higher quality, better-prepared graduates whom prospective employers are most apt to hire.

The School of Business is among an elite five percent of business schools worldwide that have earned the prestigious accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB International).
