TYLER (July 3, 2023) – The University of Texas at Tyler has earned an accreditation extension of its business programs through 2028 by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
“We are delighted to have earned this accreditation extension by the AACSB. This accreditation ensures that our college of business meets the highest standards of excellence in teaching, research, curriculum and learner success,” said Dr. Amir Mirmiran, UT Tyler provost and executive vice president for academic affairs.
Conducted every five years, the review indicates the UT Tyler Soules College of Business has documented continuous improvements in support of its mission and strategic management plan to sustain AACSB accreditation status.
“This is wonderful news, as AACSB accreditation is held by just 5% of the world’s business schools,” said Dr. Krist Swimberghe, dean of the Soules College. “This affirms our exceptional academic value, and I want to thank our accreditation team and our dedicated faculty and staff who go above and beyond for our students.”
