After a months-long comprehensive review process, the Michael Neidorff School of Business was reaccredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. Of the more than 10,000 business schools worldwide, fewer than 6% are accredited by AACSB International. This significant accomplishment reflects Trinity University's pursuit of excellence and the highest standards of learning that prepare students for success.
"We are excited and energized by the results of the recent collaborative effort by our faculty, staff, students, and Business Advisory Council," says Robert Scherer, Ph.D., dean of the Neidorff School of Business. "The reaccreditation of our school assures our students, parents, employers, and all stakeholders that our faculty and academic programs continue to meet or exceed the highest standards. We are truly proud of this team accomplishment."
The reaccreditation process began in November 2022, when the AACSB International conducted the Continuous Improvement Review (CIR) of the Neidorff School of Business. This review was conducted on campus by a peer review team (PRT) that included deans David Oglethorpe, PRT Chair (Cranfield University, UK), Oya Tukel (New Jersey Institute of Technology), and Peter Yamakawa (Universidad ESAN, Peru). The PRT's recommendation report was reviewed and approved by the CIR Committee and then ratified by the AACSB International Board of Directors.
