Morgan State University’s Earl G. Graves School of Business and Management has maintained its prestigious Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB) accreditation for both the business and the accounting programs. Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.
“It takes a great deal of commitment and determination to earn and maintain AACSB Accreditation,” said Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. “Business schools must not only meet specific standards of excellence, but their deans, faculty, and professional staff must make a commitment to ongoing continuous improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver the highest quality of education to students.”
AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education, and has been earned by less than five percent of the world’s business programs. Today, there are 755 business schools in 51 countries and territories that maintain AACSB Accreditation. Similarly, 182 institutions maintain an additional specialized AACSB Accreditation for their accounting programs.
“This reaccreditation further validates the quality of instruction provided by our faculty and the exceptional learning environment afforded the students in our business school,” said Dr. David Wilson, president of Morgan State University. “This distinguished recognition means we continue to stand out from the crowd in terms of business programs internationally. Everyone associated with the Graves School of Business and Management deserves our congratulations for a job well done.”
Dr. Fikru H. Boghossian, dean of the Graves School said, “The School prepares leaders and future entrepreneurs by providing a mix of academic disciplines, work place experience, and hands-on projects guided by highly qualified and productive faculty who combine years of experience in the business world with their research and community engagement. The professional and support staff who care and the tenacity of our students have been exemplary. We are grateful for the support we receive from our alumni and corporate partners. We celebrate the maintenance of our accreditation as we chart the next and most exciting chapter of the Graves School of Business and Management.”
Morgan State University enrolls 8,000 students and 1,300 of those students are enrolled in the Graves School at the undergraduate, master’s and doctoral levels.
