School of Business extends its AACSB accreditation

PLU’s School of Business has extended its accreditation for its undergraduate and graduate programs from The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

In addition to extending the School of Business’s accreditation for another five years, the AACSB’s peer review team also commended the school for a variety of strengths and effective practices. Among these were small class sizes, the State Farm Executive Leadership Lecture Series, and the MBA program 10-day foreign immersion experience. Becoming accredited helps ensure that students are learning relevant material, according the AACSB’s website.

Accreditation is a voluntary process that includes an external review of a school’s ability to provide quality programs based on self-evaluations, peer-reviews, committee-reviews, the development of in-depth strategic plans, reviews of the school’s mission, faculty qualifications, and curricula. PLU’s School of Business has been accredited since 1971.
