TCU Neeley Extends Prestigious AACSB Business and Accounting Accreditation

February 13, 2019

TCU Neeley passed the review process to extend our AACSB accreditation, earned by only five percent of the world’s business programs.

Every five years the TCU Neeley School of Business goes through a rigorous review process to maintain accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

Once again, we passed with flying colors.

Only 831 institutions across 54 countries and territories have earned AACSB accreditation, and only 189 hold the AACSB accreditation for accounting programs.

Achieving accreditation is a process of rigorous internal focus, engagement with an AACSB-assigned mentor, and peer-reviewed evaluation. The review assures that TCU Neeley is focused on excellence in strategic management; innovation; learning; teaching; student, faculty, and staff participation; and academic and professional engagement. The additional accounting accreditation requires meeting standards specific to the discipline and profession of accounting.

“Every AACSB-accredited school has demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curricula development and student learning. The intense peer-review process exemplifies their commitment to quality business education,” said Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB.

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.
