ACEM Achieved AACSB Accreditation 2022-04-28
AACSB provides internationally recognized, specialized accreditation for business and accounting programs at the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral level. The AACSB Accreditation Standards challenge post-secondary educators to pursue excellence and continuous improvement throughout their business programs. AACSB Accreditation is known, worldwide, as the longest standing, most recognized form of specialized/professional accreditation an institution and its business programs can earn.
AACSB Accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Being AACSB-accredited means a business school is able to continuously pass a strict set of standards that ensure quality.
Beginning in December of 2005, when the AACSB governing board approved Antai's application to begin the accreditation process, our school continuously pursued AACSB accreditation. We evaluated all of our programs, in order to ensure that they met AACSB's standards and we developed a comprehensive system for determining program efficiency and effectiveness. In the fall of 2010 we submitted a self-assessment report to the AACSB board, and in February of 2011 we underwent AACSB's rigorous peer review process. Our accreditation by AACSB was announced officially in April 2011. We are proud to say that our school is now accredited by the three most globally renowned accreditation bodies.
In April 2016, Antai College was re-accredited by AACSB. The AACSB peer review panel gave very positive feedbacks on ACEM’s achievements since it was last accredited after field visits and all-sided communications. They agreed that the college has made significant progress based on the panel’s advice. In particular, the team thought highly of ACEM’s clear strategic plan, continuous recruitment of faculty members with overseas study and teaching experience and its increasingly mature implementation of the Assurance of Learning (AOL) system.
In November 2021, Antai College achieved the third AACSB Continuous Improvement Review reaccreditation with a five-year review period.
The 5-year AACSB re-accreditation proves that Antai College has made great achievements in the past few years. As the first business school in China to be triply accredited by AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA, Antai will continue to hold on to the strategy to build a new model for business education that combines theory and practice, trailblazing a path towards becoming a world-class business school, rooted in China.”
