AACSB Accreditation

The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) 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.  AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in management education.

 With fewer than 5% of business schools accredited world-wide, the UCA College of Business was initially accredited in 1984 and remains accredited at the undergraduate and MBA levels.

AACSB 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 and quality and current curricula.
  • Cultivate meaningful interaction between students and a qualified faculty.
  • Produce graduates who have achieved specified learning goals.
