School of Business Earns Extension of AACSB Accreditation

AACSB accreditation

South Hall SUNY Geneseo

GENESEO, N.Y. – Geneseo’s School of Business has received extension of its business accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Such accreditation by the AACSB International Board of Directors is the hallmark of excellence in business education and has been earned by less than five percent of the world’s business schools.

The school received initial AACSB accreditation in 2002 and, like all accredited schools, are subject to periodic review every five years. The recent action is an extension of the original accreditation

“I wholeheartedly commend the School of Business faculty, staff and students and Geneseo’s administration for their hard work and thoughtful planning to help attain this significant achievement,” said Denise Rotondo, dean of the School of Business. “This recognition truly reflects that excellent business education is a priority at Geneseo.”

Achieving initial accreditation is a process of rigorous internal review, engagement with an AACSB-assigned mentor and peer review. During the multi-year continuous improvement review process, schools focus on developing and implementing a plan to align with AACSB’s accreditation standards.

“AACSB commends each institution for their exemplary work in holding the highest honor in business school accreditation,” said Robert D. Reid, executive vice and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. “During this peer-review process, schools must demonstrate alignment with AACSB’s global accreditation standards, as well as how they encourage engagement, innovation and impact across the communities they serve.”

AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.
