Manhattan College's School of Business Retains AACSB Accreditation

School of Business maintains prestigious accreditation, which is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools.

Manhattan College’s School of Business is pleased to report AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) has once again recognized the College with maintenance of its prestigious AACSB business accreditation. The association was founded in 1916 and is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s and doctorate degrees in business and accounting.

“The School of Business strives to provide a quality business program for all of our students and the maintenance of the AACSB accreditation reconfirms this commitment,” said Salwa Ammar, dean of the School of Business. “Manhattan College is among the select business schools to achieve AACSB accreditation, and our various programs were thoroughly reviewed and evaluated to maintain the prestigious honor.”

Manhattan College is among 85 business schools to extend their accreditation in 2014, and currently there are 694 business schools in 45 countries and territories that have earned the accreditation.

In order to maintain its AACSB accreditation, Manhattan College’s School of Business sustains a high quality teaching environment, innovative programming, and active engagement with alumni and employers in New York City. The school follows a rigorous plan per AACSB’s accreditation standards, and has a continuous improvement peer review every five years to retain its original accreditation from 2003.

Manhattan College’s School of Business, which was established in 1928, is comprised of 31 full-time and 16 part-time faculty members and enrolls approximately 800 students. Currently, the school offers majors in accounting, business analytics, computer information systems, economics, finance, global business studies, management and marketing for undergraduates, a business minor for non-business students, and a master’s of business administration.

The School of Business is housed in the College’s De La Salle Hall, which is constantly evolving to incorporate the latest technology for faculty and students. In 2012, a state-of-the-art finance lab opened to allow students access to real-time data for international stocks via Morningstar, an independent research provider.
