Meredith College has maintained its accreditation by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools.
President Jo Allen said the reaffirmation is a confirmation of the place Meredith’s School of Business holds in educating the business leaders of tomorrow.
“Our students —undergraduate and graduate— are eager learners and work-ready and, consequently, highly sought after through internships and top employment opportunities,” said Allen. “The AACSB’s reaffirmation of the quality of our faculty and curricula is no surprise to me. We are proud that AACSB sees and confirms these outstanding qualities in the Meredith educational experience.”
AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools, and the largest business education network connecting students, educators, and businesses worldwide. Today, there are more than 870 business schools worldwide that maintain AACSB Accreditation.
“What we have accomplished by maintaining AACSB accreditation illustrates our commitment to quality and serving our stakeholders,” said Kristie Ogilvie, dean of the School of Business. “This takes a full commitment of valued faculty, campus stakeholders, staff, and campus leadership who made this such a great shared accomplishment. As we now move into the next set of opportunities, we can do this going strong.”
Meredith’s School of Business, which includes the Meredith MBA on the graduate level, has a long history of preparing graduates for successful careers in the corporate world.
