AACSB Accreditation Awarded to Nine Business Schools in Seven Countries

The accreditation organization continues its push into Asia, accrediting schools in Malaysia, China, and Taiwan

AACSB International has announced that it has awarded accreditation to nine business schools. The new schools include the following:

Ireland's Dublin City University, which offers an Executive MBA. Along with University College Dublin's Michael Smurfit School of Business and IMI Management Institute, Dublin City is the third AACSB-accredited business school in Ireland offering MBA programs.

The UK's Manchester Metropolitan University, which offers an Executive MBA program.

I-Shou University and National Taipei University, which are both based in Taiwan and offer MBA programs. Along with National Tsing Hua University (NTHU), which was awarded AACSB accreditation in a recent round, Taiwan now has some 10 AACSB-accredited business schools offering MBA programs.

China's Shanghai Advanced Institute of Finance (SAIF) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, which offers MBA and EMBA programs in finance. China's Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University also received AACSB accreditation in this round.

The University of Amsterdam, which offers a variety of general and specialized MBA options and is also accredited by EQUIS. Two other business schools that offer MBA programs in the Netherlands are AACSB-accredited: the Rotterdam School of Management and Maastricht University School of Business and Economics; both of those schools are triple-accredited.

Malaysia's University of Malaya, whose MBA programs are also accredited by AMBA. After the Universiti Putra Malaysia, the University of Malaya is the second Malaysian business school to receive AACSB accreditation.

Metropolitan State University of Denver was also accredited; however, this school does not offer any MBA programs.

To receive AACSB accreditation, a business school must go through a multi-year process of institutional and programmatic review. Today, 755 institutions across 51 countries are AACSB-accredited.
