Four Business Schools Receive AACSB Accreditation

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.
