Globally Recognized MBA Programs

A degree recognized by employers all over the world

The School of Business & Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International). This means the MBA degree at Laurier is recognized around the world, and is one of the few MBA programs in Canada to receive such a distinction. Globally, less than 5 percent of the world’s business schools have achieved this elite distinction.

Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools. Institutions that earn accreditation confirm their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive peer review.

Laurier’s School of Business & Economics first received AACSB International accreditation in 2004. To maintain accreditation, a business program must undergo a thorough internal review every five years, at which point the program must demonstrate its continued commitment to 21 quality standards relating to faculty qualification, strategic management of resources, and faculty-student interactions, as well as a commitment to continuous improvement and achieving learning goals in degree programs.
