Loyola’s Sellinger School of Business earns AACSB reaccreditation

Loyola University Maryland’s Sellinger School of Business and Management received reaccreditation for its business and accounting degree programs by the International Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools. 

“Earning and maintaining accreditation from AACSB requires rigorous scholarship, exceptional teaching and strong commitment to meet the organization’s standards of excellence,” Sellinger Dean Kathleen Getz, Ph.D., said. “Our faculty and staff make that commitment every day and deliver an incredible business education to our students.”

AACSB accreditation has been earned by less than five percent of the world’s business programs. There are 761 business schools in 52 countries and territories that have earned AACSB accreditation. Similarly, 183 institutions hold an additional specialized AACSB accreditation for their accounting programs. Loyola is among 1.5 percent of business schools that have earned dual AACSB accreditation for accounting and business administration programs.

With more than 60 faculty members and 2,000 students, Sellinger offers undergraduate and graduate degrees, including MBA and Master of Accounting degrees. Sellinger’s accounting program prepares students for positions in business, government, industry and public accounting.

Sellinger was included among the nation’s best business schools for graduate specialties in accounting, finance and information systems in the “2017 Best Graduate Schools” rankings from U.S. News & World Report. Additionally, the accounting program earned endorsement from the Institute of Management Accountants, one of the largest associations dedicated to advancing the management accounting profession.
