AACSB Accreditation at William & Mary

The Raymond A. Mason School of Business at William & Mary is proud to be accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) for both our on-campus and Online MBA, Online Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA), Online Master of Science in Marketing (MSM), Online Master of Science in Finance (MSF), and Online Master of Accounting programs. AACSB accreditation is reserved for the most prestigious business schools, with fewer than 5 percent of business schools holding this distinction worldwide. At present, there are only 810 AACSB-accredited business schools in 53 countries and territories.1

The AACSB accreditation process is extremely rigorous, requiring a college or university to conduct a thorough self-evaluation and undergo an extensive peer-review process.2 Upon receipt of accreditation, member institutions must submit to a five-year Continuous Improvement Review process that documents ongoing improvements in support of AACSB's stated mission and strategic management plan to maintain their accreditation status.

AACSB accreditation is recognized throughout the world as the longest-standing specialized accreditation a university and its business programs can earn. The AACSB Accreditation Standards challenge post-secondary educators to pursue excellence and continuous improvement throughout their business programs.
