Kansas University’s School of Business will keep its accreditation in two categories from the international Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, KU announced Monday.
The KU business school will maintain its AACSB accreditation in the categories of business and accounting. It is one of 178 institutions around the world with accreditation in both areas.
The AACSB reviews institutions’ accreditation once every five years. KU’s business school first attained accreditation in 1925, a year after AACSB was established.
The business school earned special commendations on its freshman admissions program, new undergraduate honors program, career services and revamped Master of Business Administration programs, Dean Neeli Bendapudi said in a release.
