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. Every five years, AACSB requires accredited institutions to undergo a review to maintain their accreditation. Its accreditation marks the highest standard of achievement for business schools. Less than 5 percent of the world's business programs have earned AACSB accreditation. AACSB has been developing accreditation standards since 1919.
