For Immediate Release:  Dec. 23, 2014

BLOOMSBURG — Bloomsburg University’s College of Business has been reaccredited for the second time by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, known as AACSB International.

Initially accredited in December 2004 and reaccredited in 2010, BU’s College of Business is one of 716 business schools in 48 countries and territories — less than 5 percent of the world’s business programs – with AACSB accreditation. 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.

BU first offered bachelor’s degrees in business administration in 1934. In fall 2014, 1,855 undergraduates were enrolled in one of BU’s business majors: accounting, business education, information and technology management, finance, management and marketing. BU’s College of Business also offers master’s degrees in accounting, business administration and business education.

“Our continuing AACSB accreditation signifies the high quality of our academic majors in the College of Business and the dedication of our outstanding business faculty,” said BU President David Soltz. “This reaccreditation reaffirms that our graduates are well prepared and fully qualified to enter their career fields.”
