School of Business earns AACSB re-accreditation

17 Feb, 2016
img The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (“AACSB International”) officially announced on 17 February 2016 that the School of Business of Hong Kong Baptist University has been re-accredited for another five years.  AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education, achieved by fewer than five percent of the world’s business schools.  The HKBU School of Business obtained its Initial Accreditation in 2010.
The AACSB Peer Review Team was impressed by the good work that the School of Business has done to address students’ professional development needs.  The Team recognized the School of Business’s commitment to applied and experiential learning, and its strong network with the business community, and it affirmed that the focus on whole-person business education is well aligned with Hong Kong Baptist University’s mission and values. 
On being recognized with the re-accreditation, Professor Ed Snape, Dean, School of Business said: “The renewal of our accreditation status is an acknowledgement of our commitment to provide quality business education at a level that meets the best international standards.  Looking forward, we will continue to develop our teaching, research and community service.”
AACSB requires member business schools to uphold its mission and core values to advance the interests of global management education, and to maintain high standards together with AACSB’s community of leading business schools.  The re-accreditation process ensures that the schools engage in continuous quality improvement in management education through engagement, innovation, and impact.
