Pepperdine Featured Among the Best USA AACSB Business Schools

Newsweek recognized the Graziadio Business School among the best AACSB business schools in the U.S. According to the weekly news magazine, if you are looking for the top business schools,  a good place to start is with an accredited school. However, not all accrediting bodies are the same and it is important to understand the difference between them as it can have a significant impact on a student’s overall educational experience. Newsweek identifies AACSB International as “the gold standard of business school quality assurance with internationally recognized thresholds for performance, quality, rigor, and continuous improvement.”

AACSB-accredited schools are considered to be the best business schools in the world. “Earning AACSB Accreditation requires a total, institution-wide commitment to continuous improvement, and not every school can earn this prestigious distinction,” says Newsweek. “In fact, less than 5% of schools offering business degrees worldwide have earned AACSB Accreditation.” 

As of May 2016, AACSB has granted business accreditation to 517 schools across the United States and 22 schools in Canada, including Pepperdine University Graziadio School of Business and Management. Read more.
