The Leon Hess Business School at Monmouth University has maintained its business accreditation by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
Only 559 schools of business, less than 5% of business schools worldwide, have earned this distinguished hallmark of excellence in management education. To maintain accreditation the school underwent a rigorous review to demonstrate its continued commitment to the 21 quality standards relating to faculty qualification, strategic management of resources, interactions of faculty and students, as well as a commitment to continuous improvement and achievement of learning goals in degree programs.
“It takes a great deal of self-evaluation and determination to earn and maintain AACSB accreditation,” according to Jerry Trapnell, chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. “Schools not only must meet specific standards of excellence, but their deans, faculty, and staff must make a commitment to ongoing improvement to ensure continued delivery of high-quality education to students.”
The visiting team, led by Dr. Jimmy Suarez of Manhattan College with members Dr. David Martin of LaSalle University and Dr. James Daley of Rockhurst University, made special note of the following characteristics of the School.
