AACSB reaccredits SBS for further five years

In order to earn and sustain business accreditation, an institution must align with a set of 15 business accreditation standards 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 accreditation process is a rigorous process that ensures business schools are delivering the bet in business education when schools display the AACSB Accreditation seal, it sends a signal to the world that graduates and alumni from their institution are prepared to lead in today’s competitive, global business environment.

Executive Dean of Strathclyde Business School, Professor David Hillier, said, “We are delighted to receive the maximum period reaccreditation from AACSB, testament to the fact we are amongst the world’s best business schools: only 5% of the world’s schools offering business degrees have achieved AACSB international accreditation.

“As an innovative business school within a leading technological University that is socially progressive, this accreditation points to the work we do in all aspects of our business school including teaching, research, support for students and our overall strategy.

“Thanks must go to our staff, students, alumni and corporate colleagues who all played a part in the stringent reaccreditation process. For those thinking of coming to work or study at Strathclyde, accreditation stands as an independent benchmark of the quality of the school and the work that goes on here.”
