The School of Business at Meredith College has maintained its business accreditation by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
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.
“AACSB accreditation is one of the most rigorous assurances of quality for any academic program. Meredith is proud that our School of Business’s curricular strength and faculty accomplishments in teaching and research have generated positive reviews and reaccreditation,” said President Jo Allen. “As one of only two women's colleges with AACSB accreditation in the world, our quality and small student/faculty ratio mean Meredith offers a superb education and experience at an outstanding value.”
Meredith College’s School of Business offers a highly personalized learning environment, where students learn leadership through direct experience, acquire the confidence to inspire and develop the skills to solve problems through teamwork. The School of Business offers undergraduate degree programs in accounting, business administration and economics. Meredith also offers a Master of Business Administration.
“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.”
