School of Business receives accreditation from Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business for another five years

工商管理學院再獲國際商學院促進協會頒發五年認證

The School of Business recently received the accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) for another five-year term. With this re-accreditation obtained from AACSB following the initial recognition in 2010, the School of Business is among 5% of the world’s business schools to receive such recognition.

AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education. The AACSB peer review team was impressed by the good work the School of Business has done to ensure the quality of its teaching and learning and to address students’ professional development needs. In addition, the team recognised the School’s commitment to applied and experiential learning, and its strong network with the business community. It affirmed that the focus on business education is well aligned with HKBU’s mission and values on whole person education. 

Professor Edward Snape, Dean of the School of Business, was delighted to receive re-accreditation from AACSB. He said: “The renewal of our accreditation status is an acknowledgement of our commitment to provide quality business education at a level that meets the best international standards. Looking forward, we will continue to develop our teaching, research and community service.”

Founded in 1916, AACSB is the longest serving global accreditation body for business schools that offer degrees in business and accounting. Today, there are 755 business schools in 51 countries and territories that maintain AACSB accreditation.

AACSB requires member business schools to uphold its mission and core values to advance the interests of global management education, and to maintain high standards together with AACSB’s community of leading business schools. The re-accreditation process ensures that the schools engage in continuous quality improvement in management education through engagement, innovation and impact.

工商管理學院最近獲得國際商學院促進協會(AACSB) 頒發認證,為期五年,是學院繼2010年後再度獲得該會的認可資格,亦是全球少於百分之五的商學院獲頒授協會認證。

國際商學院促進協會所頒發的認證,是國際上商管教育質素的重要指標。協會評審專家團隊對浸大工商管理學院的教與學質素保證機制予以肯定,並讚揚學院致力促進學生的專業發展,將全人教育有效融入商管教育。評審團亦嘉許學院的强大校友網絡,以及與企業商界的密切聯繫,有助於貫徹理論與實務的商管教育。

工商管理學院院長施立培教授對學院再度獲得AACSB國際認證表示欣喜。他表示:「浸大工商管理學院今次再度獲得AACSB的認證,代表協會肯定了我們在提供符合國際優質水平商管教育方面的承諾,學院定將繼續努力發展教與學、研究與社區服務。」

國際商學院促進協會成立於1916年,旨在為全球商學院所開辦的商管和會計學位課程提供專業的認可資格評審,是歷史最悠久的國際認證機構。現時,在51個國家及地區合共有755間商學院,獲得國際商學院促進協會所頒授的認證。協會要求獲認證的商學院會員秉持其所屬院校的宗旨和核心價值,致力推動全球化的商管教育,並確保他們的水平能夠躋身協會國際頂尖商學院同儕。認證評審亦有助學院透過參與、創新與影響力,以達致管理教育質素的持續提升。
