The School of Business at Quinnipiac University announced today that it has maintained its business accreditation by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education, and has been earned by less than five percent of the world’s business programs. Today, there are 716 business schools in 48 countries and territories that maintain AACSB Accreditation.

“I would like to thank our faculty, staff, students, alumni and partners for their dedication and commitment to the School of Business,” said Matthew L. O’Connor, dean of the School of Business. “Maintaining AACSB accreditation is a team effort and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing students with a high quality business education.”

Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International, said, “It takes a great deal of commitment and determination to earn and maintain AACSB accreditation. Business schools must not only meet specific standards of excellence, but their deans, faculty and professional staff must make a commitment to ongoing continuous improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver the highest quality of education to students.”

Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.

The School of Business at Quinnipiac provides the foundation for lifelong learning to meet the business and leadership challenges of today and tomorrow. The faculty, many with extensive industry experience, provides real-world classroom experiences of the highest quality. Small classes provide students with a consistent supportive and stimulating learning environment to complete undergraduate degree programs in accounting, computer information systems, engineering, entrepreneurship and strategy, finance, international business, management or marketing and advertising. The School of Business, which consistently ranks among Bloomberg Businessweek’s Top 100 undergraduate business schools, also offers the MBA degree, graduate programs in business analytics and organizational leadership and certificate programs in health care compliance and long-term care administration.
