OU Business School Maintains Prestigious Accreditation


ROCHESTER — The School of Business Administration at Oakland University successfully maintained its 20 years of dual business and accounting accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

The Association’s accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business and accounting education. Every five years accredited institutions must complete a thorough review that is strategic and focused on the delivery of high-quality education, continuous improvement, market relevance and currency.

Less than five percent of the world’s business programs hold this elite accreditation. Today, there are more than 687 business schools in 45 countries and territories that have earned the accreditation. Less than 200 institutions hold an additional specialized accreditation for their accounting programs.

“It takes a great deal of commitment and determination to earn and maintain accreditation,” says Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of the association. “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.”

Oakland University’s business school has been a member since 1988, and fully accredited in both its business and accounting programs since 1994.
