CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The College of Business at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi received its initial business accreditation in 1999 from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International). Since 2009, the College has maintained both the AACSB business and supplemental accounting accreditations. 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.

AACSB Accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education and has been earned by less than six percent of the world's business programs, with just over one percent maintaining the additional supplemental AACSB Accreditation for their accounting programs. Today, there are 980 business schools in over sixty countries and territories that maintain AACSB Accreditation, of which 194 institutions also maintain the supplemental accounting AACSB Accreditation. 

"AACSB accreditation recognizes institutions that have demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curriculum development, and student learning," said Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB. "The commitment to earning accreditation is a true reflection of a school's dedication–not only to their students, alumni network, and greater business community, but to the higher education industry as a whole. Today's students are tomorrow's business leaders."

The College of Business at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi brings together faculty with industry experience to engage students and prepare future leaders for a changing global enterprise. The College’s undergraduate and master’s programs include seven undergraduate majors, ten minors, and two graduate degrees. 

“It’s a huge accomplishment that our College of Business has maintained AASCB accreditation for the last 15 years,” said Dr. Kelly M. Miller, President and CEO of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. “This achievement is due to the unparalleled commitment to student success from all levels. It includes the hard work and commitment of our faculty and staff who constantly strive to enhance academic programs and promote high-impact scholarship. It’s also a testament to our collaboration with industry leaders who play a pivotal role in equipping students with the skills needed to thrive after graduation.”
