Cardiff Business School awarded AACSB Accreditation

Cardiff Business School has become the sixth Russell Group institution to be awarded accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business

AACSB accreditation is widely recognised as a hallmark of business school excellence. Less than 5% of the world's business schools are accredited. The School is first in Wales to gain accreditation. 

AACSB Accreditation Standards are used as the basis to evaluate a business school's mission, operations, faculty qualifications and contributions, programs, and other critical areas. AACSB accreditation assures students and parents that the business school is providing a top-quality education. It also ensures employers that AACSB-accredited business school graduates are ready to perform on day one.

We are thrilled to have achieved AACSB accreditation. It is testament to the hard work of our staff and students who constantly strive to achieve the highest standards possible.
Professor Martin Kitchener, Dean and Head of School

Professor Martin Kitchener, Dean of Cardiff Business School, said: "We are thrilled to have achieved AACSB accreditation. It is testament to the hard work of our staff and students who constantly strive to achieve the highest standards possible. AACSB is considered to be the premier business accreditation recognised across the world and we are proud to be the sixth in the Russell Group to have achieved it"

The news of the accreditation comes at the same time as Cardiff Business School celebrates its 25th anniversary. The school was opened in 1987 and has educated over 25,000 students from across the globe in both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes of study.

"AACSB congratulates Cardiff Business School and Dean Martin Kitchener on earning accreditation, and we welcome them into the family of AACSB-accredited business schools," said John J. Fernandes, president and chief executive officer of AACSB International. "AACSB Accreditation represents the highest achievement for an educational institution that awards business degrees. Dean Kitchener and the faculty, directors, and staff of Cardiff University are to be commended for their role in earning accreditation."
