School of Business Administration Receives Extension of Accreditation from AACSB

We are thrilled to announce that the School of Business Administration at Texas Wesleyan University has received an extension of accreditation from AACSB International in Spring 2024. This prestigious recognition reaffirms our unwavering commitment to excellence in business education and underscores the value we bring to our students, faculty, and the wider business community.

Established in 1916, The American Association of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) has been at the forefront of advancing business education worldwide. From its inception with 14 founding institutions, including esteemed names like Harvard University and the University of Chicago, AACSB has grown into a global authority, setting rigorous standards for quality and innovation in business education.

In 2018, AACSB embarked on a transformative journey, reimagining business accreditation to better align with the evolving needs of the industry. The adoption of the 2020 business accreditation standards marked a significant milestone, empowering business schools to embrace their unique missions and thrive in diverse environments. This forward-thinking approach has enabled institutions like ours to lead and innovate in the ever-changing landscape of business education.

At the heart of AACSB accreditation lies a commitment to continuous improvement. Beyond the initial accreditation, schools undergo a five-year cycle of continuous improvement review, allowing for ongoing refinement and enhancement of educational practices. This process is more than just a checklist; it fosters a culture of innovation and excellence within our school, driving us to implement best practices and achieve long-term positive outcomes.

AACSB accreditation holds immense value for our School of Business Administration, impacting various aspects of our academic ecosystem:

  1. Quality Assurance: Our programs have undergone rigorous assessment, ensuring that we deliver a high-quality education that meets the highest standards of excellence.
  2. Brand Recognition: AACSB accreditation enhances our reputation and global recognition, solidifying our position as a leading institution in business education.
  3. Faculty Excellence: Accredited schools attract and retain top-tier faculty members who contribute to our academic excellence through cutting-edge research and innovative teaching methodologies.
  4. Student Success: Students at AACSB-accredited schools benefit from a supportive learning environment and access to diverse opportunities, resulting in higher overall GPAs and better post-graduation outcomes.
  5. Employer Confidence: Employers recognize the value of graduates from AACSB-accredited schools, leading to increased recruitment opportunities and career prospects for our students.

Our extended AACSB accreditation serves as a testament to our dedication to excellence, innovation, and continuous improvement. As we leverage this accreditation to further elevate our School of Business Administration, we remain committed to providing exceptional education and empowering future generations of business leaders to make a positive impact on society.

We invite our students, faculty, alumni, and partners to join us in celebrating this achievement and embracing the endless possibilities that lie ahead.
