AACSB Accreditation Awarded to Nine Business Schools

Newly-accredited schools include Australia's Curtin University and China's Tongji University

AACSB International has announced that it has awarded AACSB accreditation to nine business schools in seven countries.

In Australia, both Deakin University and Curtin University have received AACSB accreditation. There are now 14 AACSB-accredited business schools in Australia.

In the US, New Jersey's Stockton University and the University of North Alabama have both received accreditation.

India's Institute of Management Technology—Ghaziabad has also received accreditation, making it the fourth business school in the country to receive the honor.

The University of Bahrain has become Bahrain's first AACSB-accredited business school and the only business school in the country that has any of the main three international business accreditations (AACSB, AMBA, or EQUIS). The school offers an MBA program that has focus areas in Accounting, Marketing, and Finance. 

In Lebanon, the Lebanese American University has also received AACSB accreditation. After the American University of Beirut, it is the second school to receive the honor.

The National Chung Cheng University becomes the sixteenth business school in Taiwan to receive AACSB accreditation. The school offers an Executive MBA program as well as various master's-level business courses.

And finally, China's Tongji University has received AACSB accreditation. With the new accreditation, it joins an exclusive list of triple-accredited business schools, meaning it has received accreditation from AMBA, EQUIS, and AACSB. The school offers a full-time International MBA program, and a Financial Times-ranked Executive MBA program, among others. 

To receive AACSB accreditation, a business school must go through a multi-year process of institutional and programmatic review. Today, 764 institutions across 52 countries are AACSB-accredited.

Didn't Curtin lose AMBA accreditation a few years ago? I believe there was some kind of controversy, with them sending faulty data to one of the MBA rankings publications.

Also, interesting to see two schools in the Middle East. Seems like there are more and more options in that region each year.
