Lawrence Technological University issued the following announcement on Feb. 20.
AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, announced that Lawrence Technological University has earned accreditation for its College of Management.
Founded in 1916, AACSB is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools. Only 5 percent of the world’s 16,000 institutions of higher learning offering business degrees have earned its accreditation.
“AACSB accreditation recognizes institutions that have demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curricula development, and student learning,” said Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. “We congratulate Lawrence Technological University and Dean Bahman Mirshab on earning accreditation, and applaud the entire College of Management team – including the administration, faculty, directors, staff, and students – for their roles in earning this respected honor.”
AACSB accreditation provides a framework of 15 international standards against which business schools around the world assess the quality of their educational services. These standards ensure continuous improvement and provide focus for schools to deliver on their mission, innovate, and drive impact. AACSB-accredited schools have successfully undergone a rigorous review process conducted by their peers in the business education community, ensuring that they have the resources, credentials, and commitment needed to provide students with a first-rate, future-focused business education.
“Through accreditation by AACSB, Lawrence Technological University's College of Management has met high standards of excellence and demonstrated its commitment to the Association's hallmarks of innovation, engagement, and impact,” said Virinder K. Moudgil, LTU president. “I commend Dean Bahman Mirshab and our faculty and staff for achieving this milestone. It advances LTU's historic motto of ‘Theory and Practice’ and assures that this university continues to provide exceptional educational experiences to our students.”
Added Bryant: “LTU College of Management’s commitment to earning accreditation is a true reflection of their dedication – not only to their students, alumni network, and greater business community, but to the higher education industry as a whole. Today’s students are tomorrow’s business leaders, and the addition of Lawrence Technological University to the network of AACSB-accredited business schools will have a lasting positive impact for their institution, both locally and globally.”
