AACSB Accreditation

The College is accredited by the AACSB, (the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). Only 10% of business schools have earned this distinction. Butler shares this status with Indiana, Purdue and Notre Dame Universities, The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and the Kellogg School at Northwestern University, among others.

To earn this accreditation, business programs must satisfy the expectations of a wide range of quality standards relating to strategic management of resources, interactions of faculty and students in the educational process, and achievement of learning goals in degree programs.

Commitment to rigorous AACSB accreditation is just one element of the CBA’s strategy for continuous improvement.
