Congratulations are in order for the School of Business at Stockton University. An international accrediting organization for business school programs has awarded Stockton's Business School its highest honor.

According to a press release, "Stockton University's School of Business has earned accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), an international body whose accreditation has been earned by less than 5 percent of the world's business programs.

"Accreditation by the AACSB is considered the hallmark of excellence, and we are proud that Stockton is among such select company worldwide," said University President Harvey Kesselman.

"AACSB accreditation adds prestige to our graduates' degrees," Dean Wagner said. "Prospective students and their families often ask about accreditation, and graduate schools look favorably on degrees from AACSB-accredited schools."

"This provides more global awareness of the high quality of education at Stockton, reflected in the fact that over 75 percent of School of Business courses are taught by full-time faculty members," Dean Wagner noted."
