Stony Brook University’s College of Business has been recognized for its world-class curriculum and its demonstrated focus on excellence in all areas — including teaching, research, curriculum development and student learning — and has earned AACSB International Accreditation.
Less than six percent of the world’s schools offering business degree programs hold AACSB business accreditation. Now, Stony Brook University will join the ranks of Harvard University, Yale University and 887 other institutions across 58 countries and territories.
“Stony Brook University is honored to receive this accreditation and join a select group of schools dedicated to excellence in business education,” said President Maurie McInnis. “This honor is a recognition that faculty members at the College of Business conduct world-class scholarship, while creating meaningful classroom experiences that produce outstanding student outcomes. I want to congratulate Dean Manuel London and the entire College of Business on this significant achievement.”
“AACSB accreditation is the product of many years of teamwork and perseverance from an exceptionally dedicated College of Business faculty and staff,” said London. “It supports what we have recognized all along; that Stony Brook University business students are among the best and brightest, with a drive and determination that will ensure they are prepared to be the leaders of tomorrow.”
“We congratulate Stony Brook University and Dean Manuel London on earning accreditation and applaud the entire College of Business team — including the administration, faculty, staff and students — for their roles in earning this respected honor,” said Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB.
Founded in 1916, AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools, and the largest business education network connecting learners, educators and businesses worldwide. AACSB-accredited schools have successfully undergone a rigorous review process conducted by their peers in the business education community, ensuring that they have the resources, credentials, and commitment needed to provide students with a first-rate, future-focused business education.
