“This re−accreditation is a symbol of the ongoing excellence of KSU’s business and accounting programs‚” said KSU President Betty Siegel. “This is positive recognition of the excellent job the Coles College does on a daily basis‚” she added.

AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business‚ is a not−for−profit corporation of educational institutions‚ corporations and other organizations devoted to the promotion and improvement of higher education in business administration and management. Organized in 1916‚ it is the premier accrediting agency for bachelors‚ masters and doctoral degree programs in business administration and accounting.

Accreditation is designed to ensure quality and promote excellence and continuous improvement in undergraduate and graduate education for business administration and accounting. The AACSB International accreditation review thoroughly examined the school’s mission‚ faculty‚ curricula and instruction.

“Accreditation is essential to our mission of preparing students for productive careers that will strengthen both the economy and society‚” said Coles College Dean Tim Mescon. “We are thrilled and proud to have surpassed the demanding criteria required to be counted among the best business and accounting programs in the world. Indeed‚ few business schools in Georgia have received separate accreditation for their accounting programs‚” he added.
