The James M. Hull College of Business at Augusta State University—which was last year named by the Princeton Review as among the top business schools in the nation—has earned reaccreditation from the AACSB-International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
“We are delighted with the AACSB recommendation to award full reaccreditation to the Hull College of Business.” says Dr. Samuel Sullivan, vice president for academic affairs at Augusta State. “The Hull College faculty, under Dr. Marc Miller’s leadership, has done an outstanding job in maintaining the quality of its programs and in providing an exceptional learning environment for Hull students. It is a great achievement for the university for the Hull College to earn this continued distinguished recognition by the AACSB.”
Only 555 schools of business worldwide have made this distinguished hallmark of education. Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving, and largest global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degrees in business.
To achieve reaccreditation, the business program must go through a rigorous internal review every five years and the program must also meet the 21 AACSB standards that include a high quality teaching environment.
“The reaffirmation of our accreditation indicates the high quality of the program the college offers,” says Dr. Marc Miller, dean of the Hull College of Business. “It sends a sign to students, faculty, and our community that we set our goals to the highest standards.”
ASU’s achievement will be recognized at the AACSB International Conference and Annual Meeting in Orlando, Fla. next year.
AACSB International is an association of more than 1,100 educational institutions, businesses and other organizations in 70 countries that are dedicated to the advancement of business education worldwide.
