Towson University is accredited by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) for both its business administration and accounting programs.
AACSB International is the premier accrediting agency for bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs in business and accounting. Accreditation from AACSB is the longest standing and most recognized form of specialized accreditation business programs can receive worldwide. In fact, less than 5% of business schools worldwide are AACSB accredited for their business programs and less than 1% are AACSB accredited for both business and accounting.
AACSB accreditation ensures our programs meet rigorous standards of quality while recognizing our impact, innovation and engagement in research, the classroom and the greater community.
TU first received AACSB accreditation for its business administration program in 1992. In 1994, the accounting department also received AACSB accreditation. In 2008, the business administration program received its maintenance of accreditation. The accounting department followed suit in 2010. Both programs received five-year extensions in 2013 and again in 2018.
