Central Michigan University's College of Business Administration and School of Accounting have extended their accreditation with the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International.
CMU is among 190 schools worldwide with both business and accounting accreditations through AACSB.
For more than a century, AACSB accreditation has been synonymous with the highest standards in business education. Institutions across 57 countries and territories have earned AACSB accreditation and hold supplemental AACSB accreditation for their accounting programs.
AACSB International is the world's largest business education alliance, connecting educators, learners and business to create the next generation of leaders. AACSB fosters engagement, accelerates innovation and amplifies impact in business education.
"Every AACSB-accredited school has demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curricula development, and student learning. The intense peer-review process exemplifies their commitment to quality business education," said Stephanie M. Bryant, AACSB executive vice president and chief accreditation officer.
To achieve accounting accreditation, an institution must first earn AACSB business accreditation. Accounting accreditation requires the satisfaction of a supplemental set of standards specific to accounting.
Once accreditation is achieved, each institution participates in a five-year continuous improvement peer-review to maintain high quality and extend its accreditation.
