AACSB LogoThe Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) has granted the Montana State University College of Business full, unconditional reaffirmation of its accreditation. AACSB is an international organization dedicated to the evaluation collegiate programs in business since 1916. Only 555 programs in business worldwide have achieved AACSB accreditation.

To achieve accreditation, business programs must satisfy the expectations of a wide range of quality standards relating to strategic management of resources, interactions of faculty and students in the educational process, and achievement of learning goals in degree programs. These standards are mission-linked. During the accreditation process, the College of Business at MSU was visited and evaluated by business school deans with detailed knowledge of management education, applying accreditation standards that are widely accepted in the educational and business communities.

We are honored and extremely pleased to maintain this prestigious and rigorous accreditation by AACSB particularly since it was reaffirmed unconditionally. said Rich Semenik, Dean of the College of Business at MSU. Only the finest programs in the country achieve and maintain this accreditation. Employers and students look to AACSB accreditation as verification of the quality of a program s curriculum, faculty and staff. The College of Business at MSU has maintained continuous accreditation by AACSB since 1981.
