AACSB Accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education, and has been earned by less than five percent of the world's business programs. Similarly, less than two percent of institutions maintain an additional specialized AACSB Accreditation for their accounting programs. The Sam M. Walton College of Business is within this prestigious few.
The Sam M. Walton College of Business has maintained AACSB Accreditation since 1931. Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.
Accreditation not only means business schools must meet specific standards of excellence, but their deans, faculty, and professional staff must make a commitment to ongoing continuous improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver the highest quality of education to students.
