The Sonoma State University School of Business was one of only nine schools internationally to earn “initial accreditation in business from AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Founded in 1916, AACSB is the longest serving and largest global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting. Earning accreditation is a three to seven-year process where a business school undergoes meticulous internal review, evaluation, and adjustment. During this period, schools develop and implement a plan to help it meet the 21 AACSB standards that require highly qualified faculty, as well as a commitment to continuous improvement and keeping curricula responsive to the needs of business.”

They are joining the ranks of acclaimed business schools such as the University of California, Berkeley, Harvard, Stanford, Boston College, and Rutgers. Congratulations to the Faculty and Students of SSU/SBE.
