AACSB Accreditation


Aside from its many other distinctions, the UCR School of Business is proud to be an AACSB-accredited institution. This distinction places the business school in a league above most others. Below are some facts about AACSB accreditation:

  • Only 5% of business schools in the world are AACSB-accredited.
  • 20% of companies recruit only from AACSB-accredited business degree programs.
  • Graduates from AACSB-accredited programs receive higher and more competitive salaries.

In keeping with the AACSB imprint of excellence, the School of Business centers its efforts around two central themes:

  1. Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Economic Growth
  2. Leadership, Strategic Thinking and Personal Growth

The first theme is outward-looking (fostering growth that benefits the economy) while the second theme is inward-looking (fostering growth on an individual level). For more information, read the SoBA strategic plan.
