Grambling State University’s College of Business maintained its business accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools.

Erick Valentine, interim dean of the College of Business, said the AACSB accreditation differentiates business and accounting programs across the globe based on terms of quality, rigor and relevance.

AACSB accredits less than five percent of businesses schools worldwide.

GSU extended their accreditation based on the AACSB educations standards, which includes diversity, quality of staff and progress.

“This achievement builds on the rich history of GSU's College of Business, and underscores our commitment to excellence and quality business preparation education received by our students and successful graduates,” he said.

Valentine said Louisiana’s economic and political climate requires the College of Business to become more innovative with the curriculum and delivery, engaged with stakeholders and provide greater impact with the community.

“These objectives fall directly in line with the directives of the AACSB,” he said.

Valentine said the College of Business will continue to improve output and performance.

“The College of Business’s faculty and staff add a tremendous amount of value to the talented students who choose Grambling,” he said. “We have produced industry leaders worldwide. That is our legacy, that is our future.”

Robert Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International said business schools must not only meet specific standards of excellence, but deans, faculty and professional staff must make a commitment to ongoing continuous improvement to ensure the institution will continue to deliver the highest quality of education to students.

Achieving accreditation is a process of rigorous internal review, engagement with an AACSB assigned mentor and peer review.

Schools must focus on developing and implementing a plan to align with AACSB’s Accreditation standards.

Standards require excellence in areas relating to strategic management and innovation; student, faculty and staff as active participants; learning and teaching; and academic and professional engagement.

“It takes a great deal of commitment and determination to earn and maintain AACSB accreditation, he said.
