The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) announced last week that the Sawyer Business School is one of 36 institutions around the world to continue its business accreditation.

Since 1916, AACSB has provided quality assurance, business education intelligence, and professional development services to more than 1,600 member organizations and more than 850 accredited business schools worldwide.

“This recognition by AACSB attests that we are among the best in delivering a high-quality business educational experience when it comes to teaching, research, curricula development, and student learning. This honor also indicates that we have been improving business practice through scholarly education and impactful intellectual contributions.” said Dr. Amy Zeng, dean of the Sawyer Business School.

In order to earn and sustain AACSB business accreditation, an institution must demonstrate evidence of continuous quality improvement toward innovation, engagement and impact, and align with a set of 15 business standards under the 2013 criteria that focus on mission and strategic management; support for students, faculty, and staff; learning and teaching; and academic and professional engagement of students and faculty.

The AACSB announcement continues the Sawyer Business School’s streak of international recognition and visibility. Earlier in 2021, the Healthcare Administration programs received reaccreditation, as did the Public Administration program.
