Educational, professional, and commercial institutions that join the AACSB Business Education Alliance are a part of a global effort to raise the standard of business education. AACSB promotes innovation and excellence among its members and throughout the business community.

The certification, which is accorded to institutions conforming to global quality standards, has been attained by only 5% of the world’s institutions offering business degrees at the bachelor’s level or higher. There are 874 AACSB-accredited institutions spread across 56 countries and territories. The certification is also held by 190 institutions offering additional accounting programs.
