Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business
The Lundquist College of Business is fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the highest accreditation standard for business schools internationally. The college’s undergraduate program was first accredited in 1923, and its accounting program was accredited in 1989.
Only 800 (6 percent) of the world's 12,600 business schools are AACSB accredited. What's more, because our accounting program is accredited as well as our business school, we belong to a tiny elite of 185 programs—just 1.5 percent of the world's business schools—that have attained this distinction.
- 96 percent of CEOs with business degrees on the Fortune 500 list attended an AACSB-accredited school.
- 90 percent of ranked business schools are AACSB accredited.
- 91 percent of deans report that AACSB accreditation enhances their ability to recruit and retain top faculty.
