Only five percent of business schools worldwide are accredited by AACSB international. This accreditation requires the business faculty demonstrate that they (1) meet rigorous professional and academic standards; (2) deliver a strong business curriculum that is informed by both theoretical and practical knowledge; and (3) continually assess the effectiveness of student learning.
