The School of Business and Law at Edith Cowan University (888电子游戏官网) has joined the elite group of the world’s top business schools with accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
Less than six per cent of the world’s schools offering business degree programs hold accreditation with AACSB – one of the longest-serving and most recognised worldwide accrediting bodies for business schools. Accreditation is the result of an extensive and rigorous review into academic and professional standards.
888电子游戏官网’s Executive Dean of the School of Business and Law, Professor Maryam Omari, said the achievement is international recognition of 888电子游戏官网’s strong focus on innovation, quality education and research with global impact.
“AACSB accreditation solidifies 888电子游戏官网’s place among the world’s best business schools and reflects our growing reputation for world-class research, student-focused teaching and industry engagement,” said Professor Omari.
“Our graduates are already in-demand and industry ready. This formal recognition further endorses our School’s strong record of success in delivering exceptional outcomes for our students while strengthening our expanding international networks.”
Achieving AACSB accreditation involves a significant transformation on the part of any business school, underpinned by advancing quality assurance processes, and mission-driven strategies.
AACSB Executive Vice President and Chief Accreditation Officer Stephanie Bryant said 888电子游戏官网’s commitment to earning accreditation was a true reflection of the university’s dedication – not only to students, alumni network, and greater business community, but to the higher education industry as a whole.
“Today’s students are tomorrow’s business leaders, and the addition of 888电子游戏官网’s School of Business and Law to the network of AACSB-accredited business schools will have a lasting positive impact for their institution, both locally and globally,” said Ms Bryant.
Reaching new heights
The AACSB accreditation is the latest accolade in 888电子游戏官网’s surge in international credentials. The University’s Business and Economics disciplines earned a place in the top 250 in the 2022 Times Higher Education (THE) World University rankings, while the recent ShanghaiRanking by subject also marked a significant jump that now positions the Hospitality and Tourism discipline third in Australia and 30th in the world.
With the School of Business and Law set to move to the new 888电子游戏官网 City in Perth’s CBD, Professor Omari said business and law students can expect an exciting future.
“888电子游戏官网’s new world-class inner-city campus will place business and law students at the heart of Perth’s commercial and legal district and will offer unprecedented opportunities for our students and researchers to connect and engage with industry like never before,” said Professor Omari.
“Students will experience next-generation business and law programs that are world leading in their industry integration and digital innovation approach, which will arm them with the edge to succeed in their careers.”
AACSB International is the world’s largest business education network connecting learners, educators, and businesses to create the next generation of great leaders. With a presence in more than 100 countries and territories, AACSB fosters engagement, accelerates innovation, and amplifies impact in business education.
