Five Business Schools Earn AACSB Accreditation in Business

Newly accredited schools include Canada's Lakehead University and Taiwan's National Tsing Hua University; Finland's Hanken School of Economics now triple accredited

AACSB International has announced that it has awarded accreditation in business to five business schools. The newly-accredited institutions are:

Finland's Hanken School of Economics, which, after Aalto University Executive Education, becomes the second business school in the country to become "triple-accredited."

South Korea's Konkuk University at Seoul, which is the fifteenth business school in the country that AACSB has accredited.

Lakehead University, in Canada. This Ontario-based business school offers an MBA program with a flexible schedule.

Taiwan's National Tsing Hua University (NTHU), which offers an International MBA program delivered in English. Of the 13 Chinese Taipei business schools that AACSB has accredited, NTHU is one of eight that offer MBA programs.

Saudi Arabia's Qassim University, which comes just six months after AACSB accredited the country's King Abdulaziz University.

The process to be accredited by AACSB can be rigorous and take several years to complete.

"AACSB’s accreditation standards are designed to help schools discover—and deliver on—their differentiated mission, so they can foster meaningful change through engagement, innovation, and impact,” says Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International.
