Clark University’s Graduate School of Management (GSOM) has earned accreditation by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

This recognition is received by less than five percent of the world’s business schools.

“We are honored once again to earn AACSB accreditation as one of the world’s best business schools. GSOM continues to offer rigorous programs that include specialized master’s degrees and an MBA within a small, supportive environment. I am proud of our faculty and staff’s commitment to quality and continuous improvement,” said Priscilla Elsass, interim dean of the Graduate School of Management.

Clark’s GSOM is among 40 business schools to have extended their accreditation in business this year.

Clark’s Graduate School of Management

Launched in 1982, Clark University’s Graduate School of Management offers a personalized, collaborative learning experience, and maintains a commitment to developing and preparing future leaders to think critically, manage collaboratively and contribute to their organizations and society. 

Accreditation

Every five years, AACSB-accredited institutions undergo a review to earn an extension on their previous accreditation.

Achieving accreditation involves a multi-year process of intense internal review, as well as a peer-review evaluation.

AACSB requires schools to meet standards of excellence in areas relating to strategic management; teaching and learning; student, faculty, and staff as active participants; and professional and academic engagement.
