Tampa, FL (NBC33) — Southeastern Louisiana University is one of the 49 schools extending business or accounting accreditations as announced by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
The AACSB was founded in 1916 and is one of the longest serving accrediting bodies for business schools.
Less than five percent of the world’s business schools have received AACSB accreditation.
SLU has renewed it’s accreditation in both business and accounting.
"Business schools must not only meet specific standards of excellence, but their deans, faculty, and professional staff must make a commitment to ongoing continuous improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver the highest quality of education to students," said Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International.
Accreditation is a rigorous process that can take several years to complete and must be renewed every five years.
