AACSB Accreditation

I know I am beating a dead horse, but here is another post concerning this topic of AACSB Accreditation. I am looking at the value of the accreditation. I like to look at the value based on different perspectives.

First, consider being Harvard University versus the University of Phoenix. As you may know, Harvard is AACSB accredited and the University of Phoenix is not. Take the perspective of each school and see how you would view AACSB accreditation.

Next, consider being a business professor versus a business owner. In most cases, the professor understands what accreditation is and the business owner has no idea what it is. Take the perspective of each individual and see how you would view the AACSB accreditation.

P.S. Way to go SUU!

Any comments?

You can also view it from the perspective of competition.

For SUU, we need to worry about UVSC, Dixie and Phoenix "behind" us and Weber "ahead" of us.

Accreditation puts our School of Business more in the class of Weber than the other three.

For SUU this is a fantastic thing. UVSC will always beat us on size, Phoenix will always beat us on money, and Dixie will always beat us on political connections. So we have to make do with hard work.
