College of Business Administration renews AACSB accreditation

Marquette’s College of Business Administration successfully renewed its accreditation status by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) for another five years. The college’s accounting program earned separate reaccreditation. 

AACSB is the worldwide accrediting organization recognized by all top business schools and the longest-standing, most recognized form of specialized accreditation that an institution and its business programs can earn. College and accounting program accreditation must be renewed every five years.  

The accreditation process includes an external review of a school’s mission, faculty qualifications, curricula and ability to provide the highest-quality programs. The rigorous review process could not have been successful without the dedication of the college’s faculty and staff.  

Tim Hanley, acting Keyes Dean of Business Administration, notes the importance of the accreditation. 

“The five-year reaccreditation process, which includes one year of self-study, helps ensure that the college is consistently engaging in the important steps of reviewing the quality of a Marquette Business education,” Hanley says. “This is a comprehensive and data driven process, unearthing opportunities for growth and recentering everything we do in alignment with our mission. We are proud to have been the first Jesuit business school to be accredited by AACSB in 1928 and we have been continuously accredited since that time. It is a great honor to carry that rich history forward.”
