Synonymous with the highest standards of excellence since 1916, AACSB provides quality assurance, business education intelligence, and professional development services to over 1,600 member organizations and more than 800 accredited business schools worldwide. Four out of five alumni from AACSB-accredited schools say their graduate management education has contributed to improvements in their competitiveness, drive, innovation, and creativity.
