University Maintains AACSB Business Accreditation

The School of Business at Truman has maintained its business accreditation by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.

AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education, and has been earned by less than five percent of the world’s business programs. Today, there are 687 business schools in approximately 50 countries and territories that maintain AACSB Accreditation.

The Truman School of Business enrolls 840 undergraduate students in three degree programs—Bachelor of Science in accounting, Bachelor of Science in business administration and Bachelor of Arts in business administration. The School has 42 students enrolled in the Master of Accountancy program. The faculty and staff in the School of Business leverage the University’s liberal arts mission to graduate students who are articulate communicators, good team players, effective problems solvers and ethically-grounded decision makers.

“The hard work and dedication of the School’s faculty and staff create an outstanding learning environment for our talented students. They model collegiality and professionalism for our students on a daily basis,” said Debra Kerby, dean of the School of Business. “The extension of AACSB accreditation recognizes the School’s efforts to provide an exceptional learning experience for students and to develop a professional workforce for Missouri and the larger Midwest region.”
