Accreditation

AACSB



Accreditation means that the university has met and maintained the highest standards in higher education business school quality and performance—that we are committed to offering the best in business education. It means that your degree is worth more as you enter the marketplace. When you are researching business colleges, one of your first questions should be if the institution has AACSB accreditation

Established in 1916, AACSB is the world’s largest global business education network, connecting educational institutions and businesses to develop exceptional global leaders.NUCB was the first accredited AACSB undergraduate institution in Japan. NUCB achieved accreditation of its undergraduate and graduate programs in 2006 and successfully maintained it to date. In order to earn and sustain business accreditation, NUCB must align with a set of 15 business accreditation standards that focus on mission and strategic management; support for students, faculty, and staff; learning and teaching; and academic and professional engagement of students and faculty.

Top 5% Worldwide

There are 845 business institutions in 56 countries and territories that have earned AACSB Accreditation. That means that less than 5 percent of the more than 16,000 schools worldwide granting business degrees have earned AACSB Accreditation.

AACSB-accredited schools have better programs, better faculty, better students with higher overall GPAs, more international students, more employers that recruit from them, and graduates that receive better salaries. Click here to find out why an investment in an AACSB accredited school pays off.
