CSUEB’s College of Business & Economics maintains accreditation through 2018/2019
- January 3, 2014
The College of Business and Economics at California State University, East Bay has maintained its business accreditation by AACSB International —The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.
The accreditation is for five years, including the current academic year and continues through the 2018/2019 academic year. It will maintain a stretch of 40 consecutive years that the Cal State East Bay college has been accredited, going back to 1973. Currently there are 687 AACSB accredited business schools in 50 countries that maintain AACSB accreditation. Less than five percent of the world’s business programs are AACSB accredited.
“To maintain accreditation, a business program must undergo a rigorous external review every five years, at which the program must demonstrate its continued commitment to the quality standards relating to faculty qualification, strategic management of resources, interactions of faculty and students, and commitment to continuous improvement and achievement of learning goals in degree programs,” said Jagdish Agrawal, dean of Cal State East Bay’s College of Business and Economics.
“This is a wonderful accomplishment for the entire college, especially the students, faculty and staff,” said Agrawal, who has been a member of the CSUEB faculty since 1991.
