BINUS Business School at Bina Nusantara University Earns AACSB International Accreditation
Tampa, Fla., USA (November 15, 2019)—AACSB International (AACSB) announces that BINUS Business School at Bina Nusantara University has earned accreditation. Founded in 1916, AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools, and the largest business education network connecting students, educators, and businesses worldwide.
“AACSB accreditation recognizes institutions that have demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curricula development, and student learning,” said Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. “We congratulate BINUS Business School and director Dezie L. Warganegara on earning accreditation, and applaud the entire Bina Nusantara University team— including the administration, faculty, staff, and students—for their roles in earning this respected honor.”
Synonymous with the highest standards of quality, AACSB accreditation inspires new ways of thinking within business education globally and, as a result, has been earned by only 5 percent of the world’s schools offering business degrees at the bachelor’s level or higher. Today, 862 institutions across 56 countries and territories maintain AACSB accreditation. Furthermore, 188 institutions maintain supplemental AACSB accreditation for their accounting programs.
“In the process of AACSB’s initial accreditation process, BINUS Business School has gone through numerous changes on its way to be among the world’s top business school,” said Warganegara. “With AACSB accreditation, BINUS Business School will provide the best business education for its students. Meanwhile, BINUS Business School’s graduate users are guaranteed that BINUS Business School graduates are professionals who can meet the industry and society challenges.”
AACSB accreditation provides a framework of 15 international standards against which business schools around the world assess the quality of their educational services. These standards ensure continuous improvement and provide focus for schools to deliver on their mission, innovate, and drive impact. AACSB-accredited schools have successfully undergone a rigorous review process conducted by their peers in the business education community, ensuring that they have the resources, credentials, and commitment needed to provide students with a first-rate, future-focused business education.
“BINUS Business School’s commitment to earning accreditation is a true reflection of their dedication—not only to their students, alumni network, and greater business community, but to the higher education industry as a whole,” said Bryant. “Today’s students are tomorrow’s business leaders, and the addition of the BINUS Business School to the network of AACSB-accredited business schools will have a lasting positive impact for their institution, both locally and globally.”
AACSB also announced that Alabama A&M University, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham University, Beijing Institute of Technology, Örebro University, and the University of Wollongong have earned accreditation in business.
