Luter School of Business Maintains AACSB Accreditation

  Tuesday, February 24, 2015

CNU’s Luter School of Business has successfully earned re-affirmation of its business accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. AACSB accreditation requires a detailed review of a school's quality every five years. Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting. 

AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education, and has been earned by less than five percent of the world's business programs. Today, there are 716 business schools in 48 countries and territories that maintain AACSB accreditation. CNU’s Luter School of Business is one of only 31 programs that have achieved accreditation as undergraduate-only business schools.

“It takes a great deal of commitment and determination to earn and maintain AACSB accreditation,” said Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. “Business schools must not only meet specific standards of excellence, but their deans, faculty and professional staff must make a commitment to ongoing continuous improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver the highest quality of education to students.”

CNU’s President, Paul Trible stated, “The AACSB International accreditation validates the academic excellence and high quality of the business program provided to our students by the Luter School of Business. A superbly qualified and student-focused faculty, along with state-of-the-art facilities and numerous opportunities for engagement with the business community, make the CNU Luter School of Business an exceptional learning environment."
