Saint Joseph’s Erivan K. Haub School of Business was granted extended accreditation for its business and accounting degree programs by AACSB International as of January 30. AACSB accreditation is synonymous with the highest standards in business education — earned by only five percent of the world’s business schools.

Saint Joseph’s was one of only seven schools in the world to earn extensions for both business and accounting accreditations in this review cycle.

To achieve accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, schools must meet a rigorous set of standards and engage in a multi-year review process. Re-accreditation is granted only after an assessment by AACSB’s Continuous Improvement Review Committee (CIRC) and Accounting Accreditation Committee, and ratification by the AACSB International Board of Directors.

“AACSB is a sign of academic excellence and signifies the Haub School as a leader in business education,” says Dean Joseph A. DiAngelo ’70, Ed.D. “We are proud of our faculty, students, staff and alumni whose contributions have made us one of the best programs in the world.”

Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International said, “The intense peer-review process confirms a school’s continued focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curricula development, and student learning. Saint Joseph’s dedication to delivering high-quality business education will create the next generation of great leaders.
