The Kelce College of Business has long been regarded as one of the top business colleges in the world. Once again, it has the backing of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business to prove it.

In March, the Kelce College of Business received word that it has maintained its business accreditation by AACSB International, a hallmark of excellence in business education.

AACSB Accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Less than 5 percent of the world’s 13,000 business programs have earned AACSB Accreditation.

“AACSB accreditation is important to the Kelce College of Business because it reaffirms the value of our programs and serves as a signal to students and employers that we are providing business education at the highest level of quality,” said Kelce COB Dean Paul Grimes. “Kelce graduates leave the Pittsburg State campus knowing that they can compete successfully in the global marketplace alongside graduates from the top business schools in the world.”

Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.
