Accreditation and Recognition

Accreditation Means Superior Quality

We are proud to be accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). This  voluntary review of educational institutions has been evaluating the practice of business schools for 90 years. AACSB accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Being AACSB-accredited means a business school is able to continuously pass a strict set of standards that are designed to ensure quality. This is why AACSB-accredited business schools are the best in the world.

As of July 2012, 655 institutions worldwide hold AACSB business accreditation. All of our undergraduate business degrees (accounting, finance, engineering management, management, management information systems, and marketing), our Tech MBA, and Tech MBA Online are accredited. Learn more on the AACSB website.


The School of Business and Economics at Michigan Tech has demonstrated significant leadership in integrating social, environmental and ethical issues into its Tech MBA program, according to the Aspen Institute’s 2009-2010 edition of Beyond Grey Pinstripes, a biennial survey and alternative ranking of business schools.  Our School has ranked 58 on a list of the Top 100 business schools.

While many MBA rankings exist, only one looks beyond reputation and test scores to measure something much more important: how well schools are preparing their students for the environmental, social and ethical complexities of modern-day business.

This year, 149 business schools from 24 countries participated in an 18 month effort to map the landscape of teaching and research on issues pertaining to business and society.  Relevant data collected in the survey, as well as the entire “Global 100” list of business schools, is available at:
