McColl School of Business receives AACSB re-accreditation

by Keith Pierce

The McColl School of Business at Queens University of Charlotte has been re-accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The prestigious recognition follows recommendations by the AACSB Peer Review Team, Maintenance of Accreditation Committee and Board of Directors, that McColl has achieved or exceeded the AACSB's rigorous standards for excellence.

AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools. Currently, only 529 of the more than 1650 U.S. institutions (fewer than 5% globally) offering both undergraduate and graduate degree programs in business hold AACSB accreditation. The McColl School of Business has been accredited by AACSB since 2007.

"We're proud that the McColl has once again been recognized by AACSB, the world's leading accrediting body for our high-quality business programs," said Rick Mathieu, dean of the McColl School of Business. "McColl has a notable history of successfully preparing students to become innovative and valued leaders by offering programs that evolve with the ever-changing needs of the business community both regionally and globally."

The three-to-seven-year process involves an extensive internal review, engagement with an AACSB-assigned mentor and a peer-reviewed evaluation focused on developing and implementing a plan to align with rigorous AACSB standards. The rigorous standards include the quality of degree programs, faculty research, teaching and community service, commitment to continuous improvement and curricula responsive to the needs of business.

"AACSB congratulates each institution on their achievement," Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB said in a press release. "Every AACSB-accredited school has demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curricula development, and student learning. The intense peer-review process exemplifies their commitment to quality business education."
