Share |

AACSB International has announced that the Sheldon B. Lubar School of Business has maintained its accreditation, signifying continuing rigor and quality in the School’s programs, faculty, and processes.  This distinguishes the Lubar School among an elite group of business schools worldwide – with less than five percent of the world’s business programs accredited by AACSB.  The Lubar School has been continuously accredited by AACSB since 1970.

 “It takes a great deal of commitment and determination to earn and maintain AACSB Accreditation,” said Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. “Business schools must not only 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.”

“Our AACSB accreditation helps distinguish us among business schools for rigor and quality,” said Lubar Dean Timothy L. Smunt.  “It is a significant achievement for us as a school, but, ultimately, it is our graduates and employers who benefit.”

With approximately 4,300 students and 27,000 alumni benefitting from a wide array of quality programs, the Lubar School of Business is also recognized among the top 20 part-time MBA programs in the Midwest by Businessweek magazine, as well as for its undergraduate program by U.S. News & World Report.  Lubar faculty research is ranked 89th among the UTD Top 100 Business School Research RankingsTM.
