AACSB accreditation

Accreditation matters when choosing a business school.

The Mike Ilitch School of Business holds AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) accreditation for each of its bachelor's and master's programs. AACSB International holds the highest standard of achievement for business schools around the world. Accreditation confirms that a school is committed to quality and continuous improvement through a meticulous and comprehensive peer review process.

There are more than 16,000 business schools worldwide, and less than five percent meet the rigorous standards for AACSB International accreditation. While a number of other business programs in Michigan hold AACSB accreditation, Wayne State University offers accredited programs at an exceptional value compared to the cost of other programs.

AACSB accreditation means a Wayne State business education meets rigorous, peer-reviewed standards and features some of the highest-quality classes, teachers, research, students and programs anywhere.
