Why does AACSB Accreditation Matter?

[AACSB Accounting 

Accreditation]

Lubin is proud to be one of 785 AACSB-accredited business schools worldwide. Further, Lubin has the even greater distinction of having dual AACSB accreditation for both business and accounting, of which fewer than 3% of business schools worldwide can boast.

This prestigious dual accreditation, the maximum number of accreditations AACSB offers, ensures that Lubin students are being educated by highly qualified professors in business areas such as accounting, finance, management, and marketing. Students who graduate from AACSB-accredited schools have a better opportunity to advance to E-suite, C-suite, and Fortune 500 companies.

Why should YOU care about Lubin's AACSB accreditation?

  • ACCSB accreditation ensures that all schools meet rigorous standards for quality education and empowers those schools to be distinct and innovative.
  • You can have total confidence that the quality of business education you are receiving is of the highest level of global business education standards.

Why are students who attend AACSB-accredited schools at an advantage?
