Exceeding Quality Standards

Providing quality education is the driving force that has made the University of Connecticut School of Business a leader in the field. Since 1941, this long-standing bricks and mortar institution has operated on the premise that meeting or exceeding quality standards on curriculum, faculty, administration, degree requirements, library and computer facilities, financial resources, and intellectual climate is at the very core of what UConn stands for.

The accounting program was the first in New England to receive separate national accreditation by AACSB International, which is the premier accrediting agency for bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs in business administration and accounting. Our program is rigorous and highly respected. And online since 2003.


The business degrees offered by the University of Connecticut are accredited by AACSB International.

According to the AACSB website “AACSB Accreditation Standards are used as the basis to evaluate a business school’s mission, operations, faculty qualifications and contributions, programs, and other critical areas. AACSB accreditation ensures students and parents that the business school is providing a top-quality education.”

Its founding members include Columbia University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, New York University, Northwestern University, The Ohio State University, Tulane University, University of California at Berkeley, University of Chicago, University of Illinois, University of Nebraska, University of Pennsylvania, University of Pittsburgh, The University of Texas, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Yale University. There are 681 Schools of Business that have programs accredited by AACSB International. A smaller number, 181 have separate accreditation for their accounting programs. UConn is among this elite group of schools, and was the first one to have an asynchronous online Master of Science in Accounting program.
