AACSB - Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business
In 2013 AACSB awarded re-accreditation to Aston University's business degree programmes for a further period of five years.
AACSB accreditation demonstrates international and specialised recognition for business courses at bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral level. It is perceived as “the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide”. AACSB-accredited business schools are challenged to strive for excellence and continuous improvement within their courses. This accreditation is obtained only by schools which “have the highest quality faculty, relevant and challenging curriculum, and provide educational and career opportunities that are not found at other business schools”.
