Published: Fri Apr 13, 2007Tennessee Tech University’s College of Business and its accounting department are being re-accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
“We’ve received feedback that we will be recommended for re-accreditation at the annual meeting this month,” said Bob Niebuhr, dean of TTU’s College of Business.
Only 164 other schools in the world share the distinction with TTU of having both their college and accounting departments accredited by the prestigious AACSB organization.
“This places us among the top 15 percent of business schools in the United States and in the upper 5 percent of schools worldwide,” Niebuhr said.
Every five years, the college goes through a re-accreditation process, which involves an in-depth self-study combined with a significant amount of data collection and reports.
A re-accreditation visitation team made up of faculty and administrators from peer schools came to the TTU campus for a site visit in February.
Students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends were involved with the visit as the team provided an intensive academic audit of the College of Business’ and accounting department’s processes and outcomes.
