AACSB provides internationally recognized, specialized accreditation for business and accounting programs at the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral level. The AACSB Accreditation Standards challenge post-secondary educators to pursue excellence and continuous improvement throughout their business programs. AACSB Accreditation is known, worldwide, as the longest standing, most recognized form of specialized/professional accreditation an institution and its business programs can earn.
The Willie A. Deese College of Business and Economics has been accredited by AACSB International since 1979, and the Accounting program earned its AACSB International accreditation in 1986. In both cases, we were the first university in the Piedmont-Triad area of North Carolina to earn the prestigious AACSB International stamp of quality. The accreditation assures the quality of the faculty, the curricula, and the learning resources.
