Nine Business Schools Receive AACSB Accreditation

Newly accredited schools span 7 countries; China's Zhejiang University now triple-accredited

AACSB International has announced the accreditation of nine new business schools.

The newly-accredited business schools span seven countries. They include the following:

Saudi Arabia's King Abdulaziz University, which is also accredited by AMBA. The business school becomes the second AACSB-accredited business school in Saudi Arabia, after King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM). King Abdulaziz University offers an Executive MBA program.

China's Zhejiang University, which, with AACSB accreditation, becomes the sixth business school in the country to gain triple accreditation. 

Kutztown University of Pennsylvania, which offers a flexible MBA program aimed at working professionals, with classes delivered on weeknights and Saturdays.

Zurich University of Applied Sciences, which becomes Switzerland's third AACSB-accredited business school. The school offers an English-language International Executive MBA program.

France's EM Strasbourg Business School also received AACSB accreditation, but this school does not offer any MBA programs.

To achieve AACSB accreditation, a business school must undergo a rigorous, multi-year process of internal review, engagement with an AACSB assigned mentor, and peer review.

"It takes a great deal of determination for institutions to earn AACSB Accreditation," says Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. "Schools must not only meet specific standards of excellence, but all parties involved—deans, heads of business units, academic and non-academic staff—must make the commitment to ongoing improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver the highest quality of education to every student."
