AACSB International—the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB)—has announced the extended accreditation of New York Tech’s School of Management business programs. The prestigious AACSB accreditation, recognizing educational excellence and awarded to less than five percent of business schools worldwide, was originally achieved by the School of Management in 2015.
Founded in 1916, AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools and the largest business education network, connecting students, educators, and businesses worldwide. The accreditation standards require excellence in areas relating to strategic management and innovation; active student, faculty, and staff participation; learning and teaching; and academic and professional engagement.
“This is a validation of not only our high-quality programs, faculty, students, and graduates, but also that our efforts have been demonstrated as innovative, engaging, and impactful to the broader community,” said Jess Boronico, Ph.D., dean of the School of Management. “Now more than ever in this competitive environment, employers will look to hire graduates of programs that have passed the rigorous standards of the AACSB.”
The School of Management’s undergraduate and graduate programs emphasize professional enrichment, experiential education, and student advancement through leadership and extracurricular activities. The accreditation covers all School of Management business programs at the university's campuses in New York (Long Island and New York City) Vancouver, and China.
