UD's Gupta College of Business Earns Worldwide Accreditation
Date published: Jan. 30, 2019
UD's Satish & Yasmin Gupta College of Business is proud to announce the re-accreditation of its business undergraduate, master's and doctoral programs from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The distinction, a hallmark of business education excellence, places the
college in an elite group of institutions; less than five percent of business schools
worldwide receive AACSB accreditation.
"AACSB International re-accreditation speaks volumes about the dedicated work that
our faculty and staff in the Gupta College of Business do to engage our students,
innovate our business education, and create lasting impact," said Brett J. L. Landry,
Ph.D., dean and professor of cybersecurity.
To achieve ACCSB accreditation, an institution's business program is required to undergo
a meticulous internal review and evaluation process. During this period, the school
must develop and implement a mission-driven plan to satisfy 20 quality standards relating
to faculty qualification, strategic management of resources, and interactions of faculty
and students, as well as a commitment to continuous improvement and achievement of
learning goals in degree programs.
Through the review process, the university's Gupta College of Business was visited
and evaluated by business school deans with detailed knowledge of business education,
applying accreditation standards that are widely accepted in the educational community.
"AACSB congratulates UD on extending its accreditation," said Stephanie M. Bryant,
executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. "The
intense peer-review process confirms a school's continued focus on excellence in all
areas, including teaching, research, curricula development and student learning. The
University of Dallas' dedication to delivering high-quality business education will
create the next generation of great leaders."
Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest-serving global accrediting body
for business schools that offer bachelor's, master's and doctorate degrees in business
and accounting. To learn more about AACSB or the accreditation process, visit aacsb.edu. For more information on the University of Dallas' AACSB-accredited business programs,
