The ECIC’s Master of Applied Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Bachelor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship have been awarded a five-year accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International, based in the United States.
Founded in 1916, AACSB is the global accrediting body for business schools that offer programs in business and accounting. AACSB Accreditation is known worldwide as the longest standing, most internationally recognised form of specialised accreditation that an institution and its business programs can earn.
AACSB accreditation takes several years to achieve and involves significant internal review, evaluation and change. The accreditation standards require:
- a high-quality teaching environment
- a commitment to continuous improvement
- academic programs responsive to the needs of businesses
AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education and has been earned by less than 5% of the world’s business schools.
