North Dakota State University College of Business reaccredited

FARGO — North Dakota State University’s College of Business has maintained its business accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. The school has been accredited through the association since 2001.

“We’re excited to be reaccredited by AACSB because it indicates our business program has achieved the highest standard of excellence globally and that we are offering students a rigorous and relevant curriculum,” says Scott Beaulier, dean of NDSU’s College of Business, in a statement. “It’s confirmation that what we are doing in the classroom, in our research and in our outreach is impactful on the stakeholders we serve.”

Achieving accreditation is a process of internal review, engagement with an assigned mentor and peer review, according to NDSU. Schools must develop and implement plans to align with the association’s accreditation standards, which require excellence in areas relating to strategic management and innovation; student, faculty and staff as active participants; learning and teaching; and academic and professional engagement.

The accreditation has been earned by fewer than 5 percent of the world's business schools, according to NDSU.
