AACSB International has today awarded business accreditation to Saïd Business School, recognising its 'first rate' education and research.
To achieve the accreditation, institutions must undergo rigorous peer review and demonstrate a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curriculum development and student learning. Founded in 1916, AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools, and the largest business education network connecting learners, educators, and businesses worldwide. Only six per cent of the world's schools offering business degree programmes have been awarded with the distinction.
'Oxford Saïd's commitment to earning accreditation is a true reflection of their dedication - not only to their students, alumni network, and greater business community, but to the higher education industry as a whole,' said Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB. 'Today’s students are tomorrow’s business leaders, and the addition of Oxford Saïd to the network of AACSB-accredited business schools will have a lasting positive impact for their institution, both locally and globally. We congratulate the School and Dean Soumitra Dutta on earning accreditation and applaud the entire team —including the administration, faculty, staff, and students—for their roles in earning this respected honour.'
