School of Business Administration Maintains Prestigious AACSB Business Accreditation
- By Elizabeth Parent
The University of Vermont School of Business Administration 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 650 business schools in 50 countries and territories that maintain AACSB Accreditation.
“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.”
“The School of Business Administration is extremely pleased to maintain our prestigious AACSB accreditation,” said Dean Sanjay Sharma, of the University of Vermont School of Business Administration. “AACSB accredited institutions are known for having the highest quality faculty, a relevant and challenging curriculum, and provide excellent educational and career opportunities for students. The School of Business Administration will work hard to ensure we continue to be recognized as one of those schools.”
