The undergraduate and graduate degree programs in the Bill Greehey School of Business at St. Mary’s University have again earned accreditation from AACSB International. Accreditation by AACSB International represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide.
As required by AACSB International standards, all accredited schools must go through a peer review every five years in order to maintain their accreditation. The Bill Greehey School of Business has successfully completed the peer review.
In its final report, the peer review team noted several strengths in the business school that include: the student-focused culture that places high value on student-faculty interactions; strong connections with the business community; strong diversity of students that provides global awareness; and the Business Week program that provides a unique learning experience.
The business school was first accredited by AACSB International in 1997. Less than 7 percent of all international business programs hold this accreditation.
