Robert B. Willumstad School of Business Meets “Gold Standard of Business School Quality” With National Accreditation

How do you find the best business schools in the world? You look for those accredited by AACSB International—the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

For more than 100 years, AACSB has been the premier accrediting body for business schools. The Adelphi University Robert B. Willumstad School of Business has met these standards since 2007.

To earn this accreditation, a business school must undergo a systematic process of meticulous internal review, evaluation and adjustment. AACSB accreditation indicates that the school maintains:

  • highly qualified faculty
  • a commitment to continual improvement
  • curricula responsive to the needs of business

Accredited schools are also required to go through a rigorous peer review every five years in order to maintain their accreditation.

The School has been reaccredited for another five years, until 2022. In addition, in this year’s AACSB report, the School was singled out for its internship program, lecture series connecting the classroom with the business world and faculty qualifications.
