UD Gupta College of Business Earns Worldwide Accreditation

Date published: Jan. 30, 2019

College of BusinessUD'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.
