The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) announced in 2018 that Georgia Gwinnett College (GGC) earned accreditation for its School of Business. Founded in 1916, AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools, and the largest business education network connecting students, educators, and businesses worldwide.
“AACSB Accreditation recognizes institutions that have demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curricula development, and student learning,” said Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. “We congratulate Georgia Gwinnett College and Dean Tyler Yu on earning accreditation, and applaud the entire GGC School of Business team—including the administration, faculty, staff, and students—for their roles in earning this respected honor.”
Synonymous with the highest standards of quality, AACSB Accreditation inspires new ways of thinking within business education globally and, as a result, has been earned by less than five percent of the world’s business schools.
“Earning this accreditation so very early in the history of GGC is a testament to the diligence of our faculty, staff and supportive community to provide an outstanding educational experience from a credentialed business program,” said Dr. Tyler Yu, dean of the School of Business. “Our challenging curriculum affirms our dedication to meeting the highest educational standards, to enhance our academic reputation globally, and to prepare graduates for careers in a global market.”
AACSB Accreditation provides a framework of 15 international standards against which business schools around the world assess the quality of their educational services. These standards ensure continuous improvement and provide focus for schools to deliver on their mission, innovate, and drive impact. AACSB-accredited schools have successfully undergone a rigorous review process conducted by their peers in the business education community, ensuring that they have the resources, credentials, and commitment needed to provide students with a first-rate, future-focused business education.
Georgia Gwinnett College’s School of Business programs provide tomorrow’s leaders with knowledge and skills necessary to become lifelong learners, successful members of the workforce and engaged citizens. The school is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, a designation given to only five percent of business programs in the world.
Theory and practice come together in the curriculum, which uses real-world challenges to develop an understanding of the societal, organizational and individual impacts of business decisions. In addition to basic business principles and practices, the program emphasizes and integrates technological innovation, ethics, social responsibility and internationalization.
The School of Business offers a bachelor’s degree in business administration. Concentrations include:
- International Business
