Accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business
HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. (May 27, 2016) — Northern Kentucky University’s Haile/US Bank College of Business has maintained its business accreditation by AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.
AACSB Accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education, and has been earned by less than five percent of the world’s business programs. Today there are 761 business schools in 52 countries and territories that have earned AACSB Accreditation. Similarly, 183 institutions hold an additional specialized AACSB Accreditation for their accounting programs.
“It takes a great deal of commitment and determination to earn and maintain AACSB Accreditation,” said Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. “Business schools must not only meet specific standards of excellence, but their deans, faculty, and professional staff must make a commitment to ongoing continuous improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver the highest quality of education to students.”
