AACSB Accreditation

The Barney School is 1 of 687 business schools worldwide accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International). This places us in the top 5 percent of all business schools.

AACSB-International accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Institutions that earn accreditation confirm their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive peer review. It is the hallmark of excellence in management education.

AACSB-International accreditation assures quality and promotes excellence and continuous improvement in undergraduate and graduate education for business administration and accounting. Accreditation is a process of voluntary, non-governmental review of educational institutions and programs.

AACSB-International accreditation assures stakeholders that business schools:

  • Manage resources to achieve a vibrant and relevant mission.
  • Advance business and management knowledge through faculty scholarship.
  • Provide high-caliber teaching of quality and current curricula.
  • Cultivate meaningful interaction between students and a qualified faculty.
  • Produce graduates who have achieved specified learning goals.

AACSB International was founded in 1916 by a consortium of 17 business schools, including Dartmouth College (Tuck Business School), Harvard University (Harvard Business School), the University of Pennsylvania (The Wharton School) and Northwestern University. AACSB International is the longest serving and largest global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting. The association also is the business education community’s professional development organization, conducting a wide array of conference and seminar programs at locations around the world.
