“Earning extension of AACSB accreditation affirms a shared commitment to our student-centered, public liberal arts mission that cultivates entrepreneurial business and civic leaders. To once again achieve reaccreditation speaks volumes about the expertise of our faculty and staff, let alone our exemplary students and passionate supporters. It is a point of pride for all internal and external stakeholders committed to excellence in teaching, academic innovation, impactful scholarship, and collaborative community engagement” states Dr. Micheal Stratton, Dean of the J.

“I would like to thank the College of Business Leadership Board for their involvement in all aspects of this AASCB re-accreditation cycle. From a small group working on the initial SWOT analysis with Dean Stratton, in preparation for the initial AASCB submission, through the final Peer Review Team meetings with Board. It was very exciting to see everyone working together over many months to ensure this final milestone of re-accreditation. Congratulations to the Bunting College of Business on this critical accomplishment,” said James Wall, Chair of the J. Whitney Bunting College of Business Leadership Board.
