The School of Business Administration and Economics at The College at Brockport, State University of New York, has announced that its business accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) has been renewed. Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting. It is the hallmark of excellence in business education, and has been earned by less than five percent of the world's business programs.
"It takes a great deal of commitment and determination to earn and maintain AACSB Accreditation," said Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. "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."
Daniel Petree, PhD, dean of the School of Business Administration and Economics, echoed those statements, "The students, faculty and staff of the School of Business Administration and Economics expect the best from ourselves and each other every day. It is part of our DNA. To earn recognition from our peers as among the best in the world is very gratifying. My thanks and admiration to all the members of the School and College who worked so hard to make this accomplishment possible."
The School of Business Administration and Economics at Brockport has a long history of excellence in business and accounting education. Their talented faculty and staff work together to produce the next generation of business leaders who are prepared to navigate the challenges of working in a global economy. First achieved in 2002, AACSB accreditation affirmed the College's commitment to the distinguished academic programs and offerings within the business unit.
