USEK Business School

AACSB Candidacy

USEK is pursuing excellence and continuous improvement throughout all its programs. With regard to the business programs, the USEK Business School is currently engaged with the AACSB accreditation process.

In November 2018, the AACSB Initial Accreditation Committee accepted the Initial Self-Study Report (iSER) submitted by USEK Business School. Upon the acceptance of iSER, USEK Business School officially became a candidate for AACSB Accreditation. The school will submit updates to the iSER to inform the committee of its progress toward alignment with the standards (a three-year implementation period is permitted).

AACSB stands for the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business – the global association of leaders in education and business, dedicated to supporting and advancing quality business education worldwide.
