Accreditation & Rankings

AACSB Accreditation

A world-class university fully accredited by AACSB 

Northeastern University is accredited by AACSB International. AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in management education. It represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. AACSB-accredited schools have the highest quality faculty, relevant and challenging curriculum, and provide educational and career opportunities that are not found at other business schools. Less than 5% of the world’s 13,000 business programs have earned AACSB accreditation. AACSB-accredited schools produce graduates that are highly skilled and more desirable to employers than other non-accredited schools*. It confirms our commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive peer review process. Your diploma will be the same as the one earned by students on campus.
