Texas Wesleyan business school receives AACSB accreditation

Texas Wesleyan University’s School of Business Administration has achieved accreditation by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International, the school announced May 12.
AACSB is the premier accreditor of business schools in the world and has been earned by less than five percent of the world's business programs, according to the school.

“AACSB accreditation validates the high quality of education we provide our students and affirms that Texas Wesleyan’s School of Business Administration stands among the top schools for business education in the world,” Texas Wesleyan President Frederick G. Slabach said. “We are extremely proud of what this accomplishment means for our students, faculty, alumni, Fort Worth and the entire North Texas community.”
This is Texas Wesleyan’s initial accreditation and it must be renewed every five years.
Hector Quintanilla, dean of Texas Wesleyan’s School of Business Administration, says the accreditation will drive increased awareness of the school within the business community and attract students locally, nationally and internationally.
“This is a great achievement for our school and a great asset for Fort Worth,” he said. “Businesses understand the value of AACSB accredited programs and look for it when interviewing candidates or sending employees back to school to further their education.”

Locally, Texas Christian University, the University of North Texas and the University of Texas at Arlington have accreditation by the AACSB. - Robert Francis
