School of Business earns reaccreditation

January 7, 2011

KOKOMO, Ind. – High quality education and exceptional faculty have earned the Indiana University Kokomo School of Business reaccreditation for another five years through the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education and has been earned by less than five percent of the world’s business schools.


“IU Kokomo’s School of Business continually exceeds academic standards of excellence,” said Chancellor Michael Harris. “I am extremely proud of the efforts of our faculty and staff who are dedicated to ensuring this campus delivers high quality education to our students. Accreditation is an important external indicator of the educational quality available at an institution. Being recognized as one of the best five percent of business schools in the world is a remarkable achievement.”

AACSB standards are used as the basis to evaluate a business school’s mission, operations, faculty qualifications and contributions, programs, and other critical areas. This accreditation ensures students and parents that the IU Kokomo School of Business is providing a top-quality education.

“For students, accreditation means that no matter where they work or live in the world, the educational background they have will be recognized as being of the highest quality,” said Frank Wadsworth, dean of the School of Business. “Accreditation also ensures students they are receiving a world-class education at IU Kokomo.”

AACSB-accredited business school graduates are ready to perform at the highest level on day one and earn accordingly. Additionally, AACSB accreditation allows IU Kokomo to attract world-class faculty, staff, and students. The reaccreditation is a result of a comprehensive and rigorous internal and external review.

Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, masters, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.

Indiana University Kokomo serves north central Indiana.
