The Rady School of Management Earns Prestigious AACSB International Business Accreditation
The Rady School of Management at the University of California, San Diego has earned initial accreditation from AACSB International - Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Founded in 2003, the Rady School is the only new business school created at a U.S. News & World Report top 10-ranked public research university during the past 40 years, and is one of the youngest in the nation ever to achieve this AACSB recognition.
The Rady School joins an elite group of institutions that have achieved business accreditation from AACSB International. To achieve initial accreditation, an institution's business program must undergo a meticulous internal review and evaluation process. Less than 5 percent of business schools worldwide have merited AACSB International accreditation, which is regarded as the hallmark of excellence in management education and can take years to achieve.
"Earning AACSB International initial accreditation as a young school is an incredible testament to the exceptional quality of our faculty and our academic programs. It is also a testimony to the extraordinary generosity of the San Diego community and the school's benefactors," said Rady School founding Dean Robert S. Sullivan.
The AACSB International accreditation will place the Rady School among the world's most prestigious business schools and create a positive impact on economic growth in San Diego.
