Recognized for Excellence


Accreditation is a voluntary quality assurance process that assists institutions in developing and maintaining the highest educational standards. Since 1963, Stanislaus State has been accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). In addition, each of the colleges has earned accreditation for their individual programs.       

The College of Business Administration is fully accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, a distinction awarded to fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide. AACSB International accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. It is the hallmark of excellence in management and business administration education.

AACSB International is considered the premier accrediting organization for undergraduate and graduate degree programs in business administration. Universities that earn AACSB accreditation confirm their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive peer review. About a third of the nation’s postsecondary business programs have achieved accreditation.

AACSB accreditation assures students and graduates that their business programs have completed rigorous evaluation and peer review. The college's mission and goals have been achieved through qualified faculty, a relevant curriculum, adequate learning resources, and effective policies and practices. Employers view AACSB International accreditation as a sign that a prospective employee has received a high-quality business education. Communities view AACSB International accreditation as an indication of the availability of a highly qualified managerial workforce in their region.

This AACSB accreditation honor indicates excellence in undergraduate and graduate business education at California State University, Stanislaus.
