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.
