AACSB Accreditation Promotes High Quality Business Education

Entrepreneur, consultant, and mentor Theodore “Ted” Catino co-founded his first company, Security National Automotive Acceptance Corporation, in 1986. Ted Catino got his start with a BS in accounting from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

The accountancy department of Miami University’s Farmer School of Business recently passed the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) Five Year Continuous Improvement Review. The accreditation is a high mark of excellence for business schools, with only five percent of business schools worldwide achieving the accreditation. 

Established in 1916, the AACSB promotes quality education in management through valuing thought leadership and value-added services. In addition to accreditation, the organization provides educational opportunities for its members that gather a network of people together to explore challenges and trends in the business education industry. 

The Farmer School of Business noted that they performed very well on the review, suggesting that the differentiating factor is the high degree of student engagement at the school through various curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular programs and activities.
