Four Business Schools Receive AACSB Accreditation

New on the roster is the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU), which is now triple accredited

The business-school accreditation organization AACSB International has awarded accreditation to four new business schools. The newly-accredited schools are the following:

Vienna University of Economics and Business (Austria) With AACSB accreditation, WU is now triple-accredited (meaning it has accreditations from the three main business school and MBA accreditation organizations, AMBA, EQUIS, and AACSB.) The school offers a range of Professional and Executive MBA programs. WU is the first business school in Austria to become triple accredited.

Universidad de Chile (Chile) - Although the school's MBA programs are already accredited by AMBA, but the AACSB award brings institutional accreditation. In addition to offering a range of part-time MBA options, the school also offers a joint MBA program with Tulane University's Freeman School of Business.

Nicolaus Copernicus University (Poland) - The school is the first in Poland to receive AACSB accreditation. It does not offer any MBA programs, but has a range of master's-level programs, including one in Tourism and Sport Management.

University of Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) - The University of Sarajevo becomes the first business school in Bosnia and Herzegovina to attain AACSB accreditation. The school provides an MBA and a Masters in Management programs through a partnership with Ireland's Griffith College Dublin.

Achieving AACSB accreditation involves a rigorous, mult-year process that focuses on areas relating to strategic management and innovation; student, faculty, and staff as active participants; learning and teaching; and academic and professional engagement.

See a list of all AACSB-accredited business schools that offer MBA programs.
