AACSB reaffirms the quality of RIT's business programs

April 16, 2020

RIT's Saunders College of Business earned extended accreditation
by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International, the premier accrediting organization for business schools worldwide. Since 2011, RIT Croatia has been running Saunder's International Business undergraduate program which is included in this accreditation, and the Zagreb campus participated in the reaccreditation process.


"With RIT having the prestigious AACSB accreditation now for 32 years, we were the first Croatian higher education institution to deliver an AACSB accredited degree program in Croatia and the region. Having gone through several rigorous re-evaluations for extensions of the accreditation, this tests to the very high quality of our degree program," said Don Hudspeth, President and Dean of RIT Croatia.


Saunders College was one of 38 business schools to receive this extended accreditation in business in April 2020. AACSB accreditation is focused on maintaining and promoting the highest standards in business education; less than five percent of institutions around the world that offer business degrees at the bachelor’s level or higher, have received this recognition. Saunder's College of Business initially achieved this distinction and honor in 1988 and has been reaffirmed several times (the re-accreditation currently occurs every 5 years), now most recently in 2020.
