AACSB International Accreditation

AACSB International Accreditation

Barry University’s Andreas School of Business is accredited by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

This designation acknowledges the place of the Andreas School of Business among a peer group of distinguished business administration programs worldwide. The accreditation recognizes all graduate and undergraduate programs offered by the School of Business.

Only about a third of all business schools in the United States are accredited by AACSB, the world's premier accrediting agency for bachelor's and graduate degree programs in business administration. Barry University is now the sole AACSB-accredited university in South Florida where the primary responsibility of the entire faculty is teaching. In addition, Barry is the only AACSB-accredited Catholic university in Florida and in all the southeastern states east of New Orleans. The School of Business, which employs no teaching assistants, features an accessible, highly experienced faculty and class sizes that average fewer than 20 students.

As the world’s largest business education alliance, AACSB connects educators, students, and business to achieve a common goal: to create the next generation of great leaders. Synonymous with the highest standards of excellence since 1916, AACSB provides quality assurance, business education intelligence, and professional development services to over 1,500 member organizations and more than 785 accredited business schools worldwide. With its global headquarters in Tampa, Florida, USA; Europe, Middle East, and Africa headquarters in Amsterdam, the Netherlands; and Asia Pacific headquarters in Singapore, AACSB’s mission is to foster engagement, accelerate innovation, and amplify impact in business education.
