The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) assures an accredited institution encourages excellence and improvement from its undergraduate and graduate business programs. The AACSB International represents the highest standard of accreditation for business schools internationally. The association also analyzes and approves accounting programs.
Rider University's College of Business Administration is one of more than 500 schools internationally and nationally that has received accreditation from AACSB International, initially in 1993 and then again in 2000 and 2007.
Additionally, accreditation of the accounting department is another element that sets Rider's CBA apart.
