Sheffield University Management School has been awarded another five years of accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
The AACSB panel visited in February and undertook a rigorous two-day audit of our activities, meeting with professional and academic staff to discuss every aspect of the School.
Dean of the School, Professor David Oglethorpe, said: “I’m so incredibly proud of the School, which has once again been granted the full five-year accreditation from AACSB. This is a wonderful result and testament to everything we have all worked very hard towards.
“The panel, comprising three business school international deans from the US and China, were incredibly impressed by all the faculty, staff and students they met – particularly by the extent to which the mission, direction and values of the School were shared across the School and all of our activities. They remarked that the standard of our research and teaching was at a very high level and the professional support we enjoyed was amongst the best they’ve seen.
He concluded: “This is a milestone accreditation for us and ensures we retain our triple crown, which puts us in the top one per cent of business and management schools worldwide.”
