Accreditation

The Haslam College of Business was first accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in 1941, becoming the 53rd school to earn this distinguished accreditation. Currently 650 schools worldwide hold this honor.

In Spring 2012, UT went through the five-year maintenance of accreditation process for both the college and its accounting program and received continued accreditation of both until 2017. The AACSB uses a rigorous peer-review process to evaluate three areas: strategic management, faculty and student participants and assurance of learning. Assurance of learning requires hard evidence that students are learning what the college teaches.
