The Heller School Earns AACSB International Reaccreditation with the Brandeis International Business School

December 21, 2012

WALTHAM, Mass. – The Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University announced that it has maintained accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) for its MBA in nonprofit management. AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education, and has been earned by less than five percent of the world's business programs.

“It takes a great deal of commitment and determination to earn and maintain AACSB accreditation,” said Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. “Business schools must not only meet specific standards of excellence, but their deans, faculty and professional staff must make a commitment to ongoing continuous improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver the highest quality of education to students.”

In order to maintain their accreditation, business programs must demonstrate that they satisfy AACSB’s expectations related to strategic management of faculty and other resources, student-faculty interaction, curriculum management, and the effective deployment of learning goals.

“The reaccreditation by AACSB International reflects the strength and high standards of the Heller School for Social Policy and Management, which has developed a very competitive MBA in nonprofit management. The visiting team noted a very deep commitment on the part of all faculty in curriculum development, continuous improvement and student engagement beyond expectations,” said Heller’s dean, Lisa Lynch, the Maurice B. Hexter Professor of Social and Economic Policy. “Being a leader in nonprofit business management for over three decades is quite an achievement and Heller’s ability to produce dedicated knowledgeable nonprofit leaders who understand the business aspects as well as the policy issues is an achievement of which we are quite proud.”
