February 1, 2011Tweet
The Association to Advance Collegiate Business Schools (AACSB) International has reaffirmed its accreditation of the School of Management.
A peer review team visited SOM in the fall and commended the school for its continuous improvement environment and best practices including active student engagement through service learning projects and development of leadership skills through case competitions. The team also noted the school’s unique initiatives, including the Center for Leadership Studies and the PricewaterhouseCoopers Scholars Program, which assist in enhancing the school’s international reputation.
“The school’s reaccreditation is further affirmation that the School of Management is one of the elite business programs in the nation,” said Upinder Dhillon, Dean and Koffman Scholar.
AACSB accreditation standards are used as the basis to evaluate a business school’s mission, operations, faculty qualifications and contributions, programs, and other critical areas. Accreditation ensures that the business school is providing a top-quality education and represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide.
