AACSB Accreditation

The Parker College of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), and has been since 1983. This is a distinction that is held by less than 5% of the world’s business schools. Maintaining accreditation requires an institution to maintain qualified faculty and an established program of continual improvement. This requires a great deal of work by the faculty and administration, but it sets our programs apart as some of the top programs in the world.
