May 2002

AACSB International Accreditation

We are pleased to announce that the School of Management has recently received accreditation by AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). We received business accreditation for the Undergraduate, Masters and Ph.D. Programs and separately received Accounting accreditation for our Accounting Programs. The School of Management was commended on its:

  • Remarkably well-managed dramatic growth in student credit hours, while, at the same time, upgrading the quality of faculty, de-emphasizing the operations research coursework in favor of management science and information systems, and reforming the Ph.D. in management science in the same direction

  • Embracing the technology explosion all around it in Dallas' telecom corridor, creating a specialized master's in administration and management science, with tracks in E-commerce, telecommunications management, and information technology

  • Laudable interdisciplinary approaches involving the life sciences and medicine, i.e. the master's program in medical management education and the double major in biology and business at the undergraduate level, and

  • Expansion of distance learning capabilities via the development of on-line versions of a number of courses, and via the reframing of the master's in international management into a global Executive MBA with an on-line distance-learning dimension.
