EKU business school maintains accreditation

RICHMOND — Eastern Kentucky University’s School of Business’ recent re-accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business is a distinction that less than 5 percent of the world’s business programs can claim.

The five-year re-accreditation covers baccalaureate degree programs in all majors — accounting, finance, computer information systems, insurance, management, marketing, general business and PGA golf management as well as the school’s MBA options in accounting, general business and integrative communications.

AACSB International is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s and doctoral degrees in business and accounting. More than 650 business schools in 45 countries and territories maintain AACSB accreditation.

“Since 1919, AACSB International has been the premier accreditation organization of business programs,” said Dr. Bob Rogow, dean of EKU’s College of Business & Technology.

“AACSB accreditation ensures students, parents and employers that EKU’s School of Business provides a high-quality business education based on rigorous international standards. Graduates of AACSB-accredited business programs are recognized worldwide by employers and universities. In fact, some employers hire only graduates of AACSB-accredited business schools. This is important when seeking employment and applying to graduate school.”

EKU’s School of Business has been accredited by AACSB International since 2003.

“Students who study in EKU’s School of Business are assured their professors and curricula are up to date, and that the supporting services provided are appropriate to the school’s mission,” Rogow said. “They should know their education is worth their investment of time and resources and will provide them with the necessary knowledge and skills to be successful throughout their lives.”

Robert D. Reid, executive vice president

and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International, said: “It takes a great deal of commitment and determination to earn and maintain AACSB accreditation. Business schools must not only meet specific standards of excellence, but their deans, faculty and professional staff must make a commitment to ongoing continuous improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver the highest quality of education to students.”

Rogow credited “the School of Business faculty and staff for all their hard work, the Business Advisory Council for their support of the School of Business and, especially Dr. Rita Davis, associate dean of the School of Business, for helping coordinate the accreditation process leading to reaffirmation.”
