On 29 July 2021, The FHNW School of Business is happy to announce its accreditation with AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). This means that the quality of the MBA-MCI Program has been accredited by AACSB too.
Founded in 1916, the AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) is the world’s oldest and largest accrediting organization. This accreditation is among the most internationally renowned accreditations for global business schools. AACSB accreditation has represented the highest quality in business education for hundreds of years. As the oldest and largest business education network, AACSB connects lifelong learners, educators and businesses worldwide. There are eight hundred business schools, but just 5% of all business schools worldwide – in 100 countries currently bear the “Seal of Excellence in Business Education”.This means that the MBA degrees obtained by students of the school’s MBA-MCI program will be recognized by the AACSB. This result is the effort in several years of both HCMUT and FHNW to implement AACSB’s 15 standards for accreditation.
Only about five percent of all business schools worldwide are accredited by AACSB.
