Frequently Asked Questions


  • Membership - Questions from Current Members

    • Does an institution have to pursue accreditation to remain a member of AACSB?

      While membership is a prerequisite for entering the AACSB Accreditation process, members are not required to pursue accreditation. Membership is open to educational institutions, business organizations, foundations, professional associations, and non-profit organizations with strategic interests in shaping management education. Eligible educational institutions are collegiate institutions offering baccalaureate or graduate degree programs in business administration, management, or accounting. Membership does not confer AACSB Accreditation and should not be interpreted as such.
