SUNYIT announces AACSB International accreditation
AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business has formally approved AACSB accreditation for the State University of New York Institute of Technology (SUNYIT).
“This is a major accomplishment for our School of Business faculty and for all those who contributed to our successful candidacy,” said Wolf Yeigh, president of SUNYIT. “My congratulations and thanks to Stephen Havlovic, our business dean, and all those who worked long and hard to achieve this goal.”
Havlovic said AACSB accreditation is a distinction awarded to a select number of colleges and universities. “Less than 5% of the world’s business schools have achieved this elite distinction—and only about 400 of the 3,000 schools of business in the U.S.,” he said. “AACSB accreditation shows our students, prospective students and other stakeholders that the quality of our business programs is internationally recognized.”
AACSB International is the premier accrediting agency of collegiate business schools and accounting programs worldwide. AACSB International accreditation, a specialized, non-governmental review process, takes place over a period of at least five years. Accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Institutions that earn accreditation confirm their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive peer review.
According to AACSB, its accreditation means business schools provide stakeholders with the assurance that they guide educational delivery by a carefully constructed mission, select and support students to produce outstanding graduates, deliver degree programs with qualified faculty, structure learning through relevant curricula, and contribute to knowledge through research and scholarship.
SUNYIT’s School of Business offers undergraduate degrees in accounting, business, finance, and health services management. Graduate programs offered are: MBA in health services management, MBA in technology management, M.S. in accountancy, M.S. in health services administration. All graduate programs and the bachelor’s program in health services management are also available online.
