The Sorrell College of Business is inviting students, faculty and staff to gather at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 29 in the atrium of Bibb Graves Hall to formally announce and celebrate achieving specialized accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
AACSB International is the leading global business education network and its 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.
“This accreditation immediately adds significant value to a Sorrell College degree, for current students, alumni and future graduates,” said Dean Dr. Judson Edwards. “Graduating from an AACSB-accredited institution makes our students more competitive in the job market because employers will know they have the required skills and knowledge to be successful in the global business environment.”
The celebration will include brief remarks from various university officials and a reception. The event will be streamed live on the University’s Facebook page @TroyUniversity.
