The Board of Directors at the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB), the premier accrediting agency and service organization for business schools, announced that the School of Management achieved reaffirmation of accreditation. Out of more than 2,000 business schools in the nation, less than 15 percent achieve AACSB accreditation, which represents the highest standard of achievement in business education.

“Our fundamental mission is to ensure that School of Management students receive an outstanding business education,” says dean Richard Klimoski. “AACSB’s reaffirmation of our accreditation is a true milestone for the school and affirms that we are doing an exemplary job educating graduates who add outstanding value to regional and national businesses and communities.”

Institutions that earn AACSB accreditation confirm their commitment to quality and continuous improvement; 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; and produce graduates who have achieved specified learning goals.

The School of Management has maintained AACSB accreditation since 1991. Undergraduate degree programs are offered in accounting, management, decision sciences, marketing, and finance. Graduate degree offerings are the Master in Business Administration (MBA), Executive MBA, MS in Technology Management, and MS in Bioscience Management.
