College of Business Accreditation

Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB)

AACSB Accreditation consists of 4 major components. All four elements must be planned, executed, clearly documented, and presented to the review committee when the time comes. This analysis requires teamwork, outreach, collegiality, and good management.  No one can accomplish this task alone. The lengthy and tedious process requires lots of patience and effort. The task is challenging, but achievable as a team. 


COB will be the preeminent choice in the region for all students seeking the best value in a business education that prepares them to excel in and contribute to the regional and global economy.
