AACSB Accreditation Formally Approved for School of Economics and Management

AACSB Accreditation Formally Approved for School of Economics and Management

 

AACSB£¨The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International£©sent us a formal letter on March 4th 2016, notifying us that School of Economics and Management of this university won the approval for AACSB accreditation following our application pursuant to the deliberating and balloting results at the meeting held by Initial Accreditation Committee from the 2nd to 3rd of February, 2016. This marks the beginning of AACSB formal procedure of accreditation for this school.

 

Founded in 1916, AACSB is credited to be the sole organization in the world that is capable of accrediting business schools. Only 5% of business schools around the world have won this accreditation reserved for elite schools. AACSB accreditation proceeds in four stages of Eligibility Accreditation, Pre Accreditation, Initial Accreditation and Maintenance of Accreditation. The present endorsement of our application ushered us into the formal procedure of AACSB accreditation. In the following five or so years, the faculty and students of this school should work concertedly and cooperate proactively, so as to complete this strenuous but enduring engineering task on improvement of educational quality with joint efforts, till the date when we could pass the verification and examination by AACSB accreditation experts.

 

Up till now, 15 business schools in China¡¯s mainland have earned AACSB accreditation, and another 46, all with AACSB membership, are working incessantly right now toward the goal of AACSB accreditation. In this context, it is imperative and pressing for us to adopt the significant strategy of winning this accreditation with all efforts. We should place emphasis on the opportunities and challenges that come with our integration into the external environment, sum up carefully the past experience and existing problems with school development, and put into order the school operation and management procedures in a systematic way. These will be conducive to the improvement on our school operation, realization of the 13th Five-year Plan of this school, and lay solid foundation for our development into a leading school that guides China¡¯s development across all sectors.
