National Central University Earns AACSB International Accreditation

AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) announced on August 18 that National Central University has earned accreditation for the School of Management. As noted by Dean Gwo-Ji Sheen, the accreditation helps to facilitate international sister-school arrangement and establish joint degree or student exchange program. Students can be offered more international exchange opportunities to broaden their horizons.

Founded in 1916, AACSB is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools. Today, there are 716 business schools in 48 countries and territories that maintain AACSB Accreditation.

Achieving accreditation is a long process of rigorous review as all accredited schools must go through a peer review process every five years in order to retain their accreditation. Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International, congratulates National Central University for achieving the accreditation, which has been earned by less than five percent of the world’s business programs. “Dean Sheen and the faculty, directors, and staff of NCU are to be commended for their role in earning accreditation.”

AACSB Accreditation reviews three main themes: strategic planning, participant engagement, and assurance of learning. The school must meet AACSB’s Accreditation Standards and ensure continuous improvement. The School of Management has not only met specific standards of excellence, but has also ensured that the school will continue to accomplish strategic plan.

The School of Management’s mission is to provide “excellence in academic research”, “international management education”, and “an environment for cultivating business leaders with an understanding of their responsibilities for sustainable development in both the business world and society in general”. AACSB Accreditation is indeed a great encouragement for the School of Management’s long commitment to teaching and research excellence.
