During the official inauguration of the new academic year, Timothy S. Mescon, Ph.D., the Senior Vice President and Chief Officer for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, AACSB International, handed out a certificate confirming the obtainment of AACSB accreditation to the Dean of the Faculty of Economic Sciences and Management.
The Faculty of Economic Sciences and Management (FESM) at Nicolaus Copernicus University (NCU) in Toruń as the first and the only public school in Poland has earned accreditation by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.
AACSB Accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education, and has been earned by less than five percent of the world's business programs. Today, there are 740 business schools in 50 countries and territories that maintain AACSB Accreditation. Similarly, 182 institutions maintain an additional specialized AACSB Accreditation for their accounting programs.
“It takes a great deal of commitment and determination to earn AACSB Accreditation,” said Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. “Business schools must not only meet specific standards of excellence, but their deans, faculty, and professional staff must make a commitment to ongoing continuous improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver the highest quality of education to students.”
