The Marquette College of Business Administration has successfully renewed its accreditation status by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) for another five years. The college’s accounting program earned separate reaccreditation.
AACSB is the global accrediting body recognized by all top business schools and the oldest and most recognized form of specialized accreditation an institution and its business programs can achieve. The accreditation of the college and the accounting program must be renewed every five years.
The accreditation process includes an external review of a school’s mission, faculty qualifications, programs, and ability to deliver the highest quality programs. The rigorous review process could not have succeeded without the dedication of the faculty and staff of the college.
Tim Hanley, acting dean of business administration at Keyes, emphasizes the importance of accreditation.
“The five-year reaccreditation process, which includes one year of self-study, helps ensure the college consistently engages in the important steps of reviewing the quality of a Marquette business education,” says Hanley. . “It’s a comprehensive, data-driven process, unearthing opportunities for growth and refocusing everything we do in line with our mission. We are proud to have been the first Jesuit business school to be accredited by AACSB in 1928 and have been continuously accredited since then. It is a great honor to carry forward this rich history.
