Shenandoah University School of Business achieved its five-year accreditation renewal in April with the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Dean Astrid Sheil, Ph.D., led the School of Business faculty and staff to the successful completion of this milestone.
Shenandoah University initially earned AACSB accreditation for its business programs in 2007, and has continued to maintain its high standards across its undergraduate and graduate programs.
Passing accreditation with AACSB requires us to focus on impact, innovation, and engagement in communities we serve, provide proof of continuous improvement, and maintain fidelity to the highest standards of instruction and research. This is why only 900 business schools in the world hold AACSB accreditation.”
Astrid Sheil, Ph.D. | Dean, Shenandoah University School of Business
