AACSB-logo-member-color-RGB.pngAACSB – significant hallmark of excellence in business education and research

The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation is known worldwide as the most highly esteemed form of accreditation an institution and its business programmes can earn. AACSB’s mission is to foster engagement, accelerate innovation, and amplify impact in business education. AACSB Accreditation is the benchmark of quality worldwide and most widely sought after by business schools—less than 5% worldwide have earned the achievement.

AACSB Accreditation evaluates business schools according to 15 standards that focus on different aspects: mission and strategic management, the quality of the school's faculty, and the level of education programmes and student learning. AACSB accreditation is granted to an entire institution and covers all education in economics and business administration provided by that school.

Eligible business schools usually need 3-7 years to achieve accreditation. Jyväskylä University School of Business and Economics is in the initial accreditation process pursuing AACSB accreditation.
