AACSB Extends Accreditation for NCCU School of Business


The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International Board of Directors announced on January 23, 2018, that it will extend accreditation in business for North Carolina Central University (NCCU)’s School of Business for five years. AACSB Accreditation is synonymous with the highest standards in business education and has been earned by less than five percent of the world’s business schools.

According to the AACSB, 799 institutions across 53 countries and territories have earned AACSB Accreditation and 186 institutions hold additional specialized AACSB Accreditation for their accounting programs.

NCCU Chancellor Dr. Johnson O. Akinleye: “I congratulate Dr. Wanda Lester, interim dean of the School of Business, along with the faculty, staff and students who have worked tirelessly to ensure NCCU’s School of Business maintains its competitive edge.”

Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB: “AACSB congratulates each institution on their achievement. Every AACSB-accredited school has demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curricula development, and student learning. The intense peer-review process exemplifies their commitment to quality business education.”

The School of Business originally received accreditation in 2006.
