Students aren't the only members of the UD community who will likely notice the positive effects of a College of Business that is now AACSB-accredited.
"AACSB Accreditation means that UD now has a concrete framework for continually measuring program and school quality in the College of Business," explained Robert Scherer, dean of the College of Business. "Every five years, UD will receive a maintenance visit from AACSB; at this visit we will demonstrate how we are regularly re-evaluating the educational goals of our programs. This means that faculty and staff are constantly expanding their skill sets and becoming more thoughtful about what they do."
In addition to the framework for constant measurement mentioned by Scherer, faculty and staff at AACSB-accredited schools, according to an AACSB survey, typically notice:
• an increasingly higher quality of peers in terms of advanced academic and professional
• greater access to the local business community;
• classes with more high-quality students;
• and, more opportunities to collaborate internationally.
Faculty and staff at other AACSB-accredited schools have also noticed a greater sense of pride that results in an even more satisfying internal culture.
All UD faculty and staff are invited to join the college in celebrating its AACSB
Accreditation during an open house on Tuesday, Jan. 29, from 4-6 p.m. in the second
floor dining room of Haggar University Center. College of Business students and alumni
will also attend. If you plan to attend, please RSVP by Monday, Jan. 28.
Scherer will host the event, which will feature desserts and a special AACSB Accreditation commemorative gift.
