Chaifetz School Accreditation Extended by Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business
The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business announced on February 2, 2021 the Chaifetz School’s accreditation in business and supplemental accreditation in accounting have been extended for another five years through 2026. The announcement follows a rigorous peer review and virtual site visit from deans and associate deans of fellow AACSB-accredited institutions which recommended the Chaifetz School’s accreditation extension.
AACSB-accredited business schools undergo a continuous improvement review process every five years to maintain accreditation. The ongoing process ensures accredited institutions document continuous improvements in support of their stated missions and strategic management plans to sustain AACSB accreditation status.
“The Chaifetz School of Business is thrilled to have the confidence and endorsement of AACSB, as we continuously innovate and provide our students with outstanding undergraduate and graduate programs,” said Barnali Gupta, Ph.D., Edward Jones Dean of the Chaifetz School of Business. “Our continued accreditation in both business and accounting speaks to our commitment to ensuring that our students are prepared for successful careers as leaders in the future of business.”
AACSB is considered the premier accrediting organization for collegiate schools of business. Worldwide, AACSB has accredited 882 business institutions in 57 countries and territories and recognized 189 of those institutions with a supplemental, specialized accreditation for their accounting programs.
