AACSB Accreditation

Lubin has successfully maintained its dual accreditation for both business and accounting by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Fewer than 2% of business schools worldwide have this elite dual accreditation for both business and accounting. Achieving accreditation is a process of rigorous internal review, engagement with an AACSB-assigned mentor, and peer review. Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer, AACSB International remarked, "The Lubin School of Business has embraced and embodied engagement, innovation, and impact as the foundation for their accreditation and continuous improvement efforts." "The focus on career preparation for our students, the collegiality and engagement of faculty, and the inclusiveness and integration of our very diverse student population, were cited as exemplary," said Dean Neil Braun.
