AUE Earns AACSB International Accreditation

Tampa, Fla., USA (February 16, 2022) — AACSB International (AACSB) announces that American University in the Emirates has earned business accreditation for its College of Business Administration. Founded in 1916, AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools, and the largest business education network connecting learners, educators, and businesses worldwide.

AACSB“College of Business Administration at American University in the Emirates is extremely proud and immensely grateful to receive the golden seal from AACSB to join the less-than-six percent of the world’s elite business schools. AACSB accreditation has reaffirmed College of Business Administration’s commitment to providing quality education to its students and preparing them in becoming business professionals through academic programs and applied-to-learn approaches as College of Business Administration aligned its curriculum with global expectations," said Asma Salman, dean of the College of Business Administration.

“At the American University in the Emirates we believe that “Nothing is Impossible” and the landmark achievement of the AACSB institutional accreditation is a major milestone in our university’s ongoing strategic management excellence and continuous improvement process,” said Muthanna Abdul Razzaq, president of American University in the Emirates.

Synonymous with the highest standards of quality, AACSB accreditation inspires new ways of thinking within business education globally. As a result, less than 6 percent of the world's schools offering business degree programs hold AACSB business accreditation. Through today’s ratification, a total of 937 institutions across 60 countries and territories have earned AACSB accreditation in business. Furthermore, 190 institutions maintain supplemental AACSB accreditation for their accounting programs.

AACSB accreditation ensures continuous improvement and provides 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.

“American University in the Emirates’ 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 College of Business Administration to the network of AACSB-accredited business schools will have a lasting positive impact for their institution, both locally and globally.”
