Mississippi State University’s Richard C. Adkerson School of Accountancy has been reaccredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB)

The distinction will last for five years and MSU is one of 186 institutions from around the world that hold the accreditation, MSU said in a media release.

School of Accountancy Director Shawn Mauldin said separate AACSB accounting accreditation confirms the school’s commitment to a continuous improvement process through an extremely rigorous peer review process.

“The externally validated hallmark of excellence in accounting ensures that we are providing high-quality undergraduate and graduate accounting programs,” Mauldin said.

Accreditation standards require innovation, quality in management, and learning, professional and teaching engagement.
