New Paltz’s School of Business has earned initial accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International, an accomplishment achieved by fewer than five percent of the world’s business programs. AACSB Accreditation, the hallmark of excellence in business education, requires a process of rigorous internal review, evaluation, and adjustment and took several years to complete. It represents the highest achievement for an educational institution that awards business degrees.

“This is wonderful news for everyone at the School of Business,” said Hadi Salavitabar, dean of the School of Business. “Our faculty, staff, students and curriculum excelled during this intense seven-year accreditation process. We work hard to provide our students the best educational experience possible and I’m thrilled that our program is recognized as one of the top quality business programs in the world.”

“It takes a great deal of self-evaluation and determination to earn AACSB Accreditation, and I commend the State University of New York at New Paltz for its dedication to management education, as well as its leadership in the community,” said Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. “Through accreditation, the State University of New York at New Paltz has not only met specific standards of excellence, but has also made a commitment to ongoing improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver high quality education to its students.”
