NEW YORK, Feb. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Lubin School of Business at Pace University has successfully maintained its dual accreditation for both business and accounting by AACSB International, the University today announced.
Lubin's dual accreditation by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business is an elite distinction shared by fewer than 2 percent of business schools in the world offering business degree programs.
"Pace University has a steadfast commitment to providing our students with the tools they'll need to succeed in their careers after graduation," said Pace President Marvin Krislov. "I'm proud that the Lubin School of Business will maintain its dual AACSB accreditation, and I know we'll continue our long tradition of creating opportunities for ambitious, hard-working business and accounting students."
Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees in business and accounting. AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business and accounting education. There are currently 882 business institutions in 57 countries and territories that have earned AACSB Accreditation. Similarly, 189 institutions hold a supplemental, specialized AACSB Accreditation for their accounting programs.
"Earning the distinction of dual AACSB accreditation reflects a business institution's commitment to the highest standards of excellence," said Lawrence G. Singleton, dean of the Lubin School of Business. "We thoroughly enjoyed working with our strong peer review team and appreciate the helpful feedback they provided throughout the process. Lubin's focus on student success, career preparation, and innovative programs and practices were important components for re-accreditation success."
Achieving accreditation is a multi-year process of rigorous internal review and peer review. These standards require excellence in areas relating to strategic management and innovation; student, faculty, and staff as active participants; learning and teaching; and academic and professional engagement.
"AACSB congratulates Pace University's Lubin School of Business and Dean Lawrence G. Singleton on extending accreditation in business and accounting," said Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. "The intense peer-review process confirms a school's continued focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curriculum development, and student learning. The Lubin School of Business' dedication to delivering high quality business education will create the next generation of great leaders."
Pace University Provost Vanya Quiñones added: "The Lubin School of Business has a long and distinguished history of success. It is a key part of Pace University's fundamental mission of creating opportunities for students and educating professionals for success in their chosen fields. This dual accreditation by AACSB International affirms our commitment to excellence and educating leaders across all spectrums of business."
Pace University has a rich history of excellence in business education and was founded as a school of accountancy in 1906. With a strong focus on experiential learning and one of the largest internship placement programs in the New York metropolitan area, Lubin's combined job placement rate is more than 93 percent. Furthermore, the Accounting Department successfully launched a new MS in Accounting Data Analytics and Technologies (MSADAT) program, which teaches students cutting-edge STEM skills while preparing them for CPA licensure examinations. Lubin also recently launched an online MBA program that is convenient, flexible and affordable.
For Jackie Lee-Martinez, a freshman from Miami, Fla. majoring in marketing, the accreditation, the curriculum and the University's successful rate of job placement reaffirms her decision to attend Pace.
"Upon receiving the news that Pace University's Lubin's School of Business successfully maintained its dual accreditation for both business and accounting by AACSB, I felt a great sense of gratitude and pride in being a Pace business student," said Lee-Martinez. "Lubin is ranked among the best of business schools and is consistently distinguishing itself, which is evident through the substantial opportunities in the classroom and beyond. Being a Lubin student is incredibly rewarding, and I am confident that our school will continue to receive many more prestigious accolades."
