The Anisfield School of Business (ASB) provides students with a strong educational foundation for a lifetime of learning and for career achievement as responsible contributors and leaders. In recognition of the School’s commitment to this mission and to its core values that emphasize academic excellence and professionalism, ASB has earned initial accreditation through AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business – in 2011 and was re-accredited in 2016. AACSB International accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools. Achieving and maintaining AACSB accreditation requires a rigorous, standards based, on-going process that requires the commitment of the entire faculty and staff of the school as well as the continual support of College administration. Key stakeholders include students, alumni and the business community, all of whom participate in the process.
AACSB’s goals to transform business education include fostering engagement, accelerating innovation, and amplifying impact on business education and practice. ASB embraces these goals and demonstrates commitment to them through the engagement of our faculty and students in the learning process and innovations in teaching and experiential learning. Furthermore, the School impacts business through the scholarship of the faculty and the successful career paths of its graduates.
A peer review team of experienced business school deans with detailed knowledge of management education visited the School in the fall of 2015 for the Continuous Improvement Review required every five years. The team ascertained that ASB continues to meet the high standards set by AACSB and is dedicated to the continuous improvement of its business programs, recommending extension of accreditation. Most notably, in making this recommendation, the peer review team did not identify any issues to be addressed in the next review cycle, a rare and distinctly positive result.
