The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business— AACSB International —recognizes the Management Division of Penn State Great Valley as an accredited school of business. Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.

Every five years AACSB conducts a “Continuous Improvement Review” to extend their accreditation of an institution. The process includes a peer review from other accredited business schools in addition to final approval from the Board of Directors.
