Brandeis University Earns AACSB International Accreditation for Business Programs

December 17, 2007

Brandeis University has announced that it has been awarded accreditation for its business programs, which include the Heller MBA and the graduate degree programs at the International Business School.

The accredited degree programs were subjected to careful scrutiny to determine the quality of the programs and their faculty. The accreditation process includes evaluating interactions between faculty and students in the classroom, how resources are managed, and how learning goals are established and achieved over time.

The Heller MBA is a 16-month program that prepares leaders to manage organizations pursuing social missions in the non-profit, for-profit, and public sectors.  It is jointly managed with the International Business School.

“Coming so soon after the Aspen Institute’s ranking of the Heller MBA as #1 in the Boston area and #19 in the world for its integration of social impact into business decision-making, this new accreditation solidifies our positioning as a rigorous MBA that prepares students to lead organizations with a social mission,” said Program Director Jody Hoffer Gittell.

“We are delighted AACSB International has recognized that the educational experience being delivered by our faculty is of such high quality,” said Marty Wyngaarden Krauss, provost and senior vice president for academic affairs at Brandeis.
