AACSB Accreditation

The D’Amore-McKim School of Business is accredited by AACSB. 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.
