AACSB accredited

The University of Southampton Business School has become a member of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

This respected US-based professional organisation connects the world’s leading universities and institutions who are dedicated to sharing knowledge and best practice to accelerate innovation in business education.

“This is a tremendous accolade for Southampton Business School which confirms our highest commitment to rigorous quality-led research and learning for the benefit of all our stakeholders and society. We are proud to receive the AACSB accreditation and we will continue to develop the next generation of future leaders with this added global recognition,” says Professor Martin Broad, Head of Southampton Business School.

Stephanie M. Bryant, Executive Vice President and Chief Accreditation officer of AACSB International added:

“We congratulate the University of Southampton and Dean of School, Professor Martin Broad on earning accreditation, and applaud the entire Southampton Business School team – including the administration, faculty, directors, staff, and students for their roles in earning this respected honour. Southampton Business School’s commitment to earning accreditation is a true reflection of their dedication – not only to their students, alumni network, and greater business community, but to the higher education industry as a whole.”

The Association connects respected business schools to inspire quality and innovation within the education and business communities and ensure they are a force for good across the world. For Southampton Business School students and staff, accreditation is a global recognition of quality and a commitment to continuous improvement in education and the student experience.

Southampton Business School is in good company. Fewer than five per cent of the world’s business schools have gained AACSB accreditation. It also holds accreditation for its MBA from the Association of MBAs (AMBA).
