Earning the designation of AACSB accreditation is a significant milestone—one that should be celebrated and shared across your marketing and communications platforms.
By integrating the Business Education Alliance (BEA) logo and the AACSB accreditation seal into your marketing and communications efforts, you are demonstrating your commitment to improving the quality and value of business education.
To support your promotional efforts, AACSB created a robust toolkit to communicate the value of accreditation to various stakeholders, including:
To access the toolkit, along with the brand standards and design files for the accreditation seal and BEA logo, please contact Sarah Ham, director of marketing and communications, at email@example.com.
Is your school in the initial accreditation process?
A school in the initial accreditation process may disclose that they are seeking accreditation if the Initial Accreditation Committee or the Accounting Accreditation Committee has accepted the Initial Self Evaluation Report. They cannot imply that they will achieve accreditation within a designated time period. Displaying the AACSB accreditation seal is reserved only for those who have earned the designation.
If you are responsible for marketing, communications, public relations, social media, or web development at your AACSB-accredited school, these resources will boost your marketing efforts and increase your target audience’s awareness of how important earning AACSB Accreditation is to your school.
AACSB also has a suite of tools and resources available through myAACSB that can be used to:
