School of Business Receives Prestigious AACSB Reaccreditation

GENESEO, N.Y. -- SUNY Geneseo's School of Business has received business reaccreditation by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International). The association is the longest-serving global accrediting body to advance quality management education in business schools offering bachelor's, master's or doctoral degrees in business and accounting.

Geneseo's School of Business has about 750 majors in its three degree programs: accounting, business administration, and economics. The school also offers a master's degree program in accounting.

"We are quite pleased to have earned this continued distinguished recognition," said Michael Schinski, dean of Geneseo's School of Business. "It affirms the quality of our programs, faculty and students and encourages us to continually improve the exceptional learning environment we have established at Geneseo."

To maintain accreditation, a business program must undergo a rigorous internal review every five years, demonstrating its continued commitment to the 21 quality standards relating to faculty qualification, strategic management of resources and interactions of faculty and students. It also must demonstrate a commitment to continuous improvement and achievement of learning goals in degree programs.

"It takes a great deal of self-evaluation and determination to earn and maintain AACSB Accreditation," said Jerry Trapnell, vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. "Schools not only must meet specific standards of excellence, but their deans, faculty and staff must make a commitment to ongoing improvement to ensure continued delivery of high-quality education to students."
