Wednesday, July 20, 2022

BCBUU, Beijing — Business College of Beijing Union University has been awarded AACSB International accreditation, a distinction enjoyed by fewer than 6% of business schools worldwide, as appeared in the official website of AACSB.

Founded in 1978, the Business College is striving to become a globally integrated business school that is highly valued by the regional community. Upholding BUU’s motto, “Learning to apply knowledge”, and sticking to its mission “to supply future core talent of business administration and to advance applied innovation and research, in fulfilling our social responsibilities in regional social and economic development,” after four decades of development, the College has become an institution focusing on cultivation of talent in economics and management fields serving the capital city, the nation, and the world.


Aiming to become of globalized high-class business school through continuously improvement, the College joined in AACSB international, applying the prestigious business accreditation standards in its education process and management in 2013.
AACSB-accredited schools undergo a rigorous peer review to ensure their ability to provide a future-focused business education. During the multiyear process, schools develop and implement a plan that meets accreditation requirements.
“AACSB accreditation recognizes institutions that have demonstrated a focus on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curriculum development, and student learning,” said Stephanie M. Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB. “We congratulate Business College, Beijing Union University and Dean Jianbin Chen on earning accreditation, and applaud the entire team—including the administration, faculty, staff, and students—for their roles in earning this respected honor.”
“We are extremely pleased to learn that our Business College has earned the AACSB international accreditation, which includes us to the top 5% of the business program in the world,” said Business College Dean Prof. Jianbin Chen. “Earning this initial accreditation is not the end, but the embarkment of a new phase of the journey. I would also like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to my fellow colleagues in the Business College as well as those in the university community who have provided selfless support to make this accreditation possible. This accreditation serves not only as an acknowledgement of our teaching and learning excellence, but also as a statement of our commitment to an ongoing improvement. We understand what is ahead also requires that we continue to strive for excellence in providing quality business education, research, and services to benefit the capital city, the nation, and the world, while being focused on developing and following an improved strategy that delivers on the vision and mission of both the Business College to be a top business school and BUU as a pioneer university.”
Synonymous with the highest standards of quality, AACSB accreditation inspires new ways of thinking within business education globally. As a result, less than 6 percent of the world's schools offering business degree programs hold AACSB business accreditation. Through today’s ratification, a total of 950 institutions across 59 countries and territories have earned AACSB accreditation in business. Furthermore, 192 institutions maintain supplemental AACSB accreditation for their accounting programs.   
AACSB accreditation ensures continuous improvement and provides focus for schools to deliver on their mission, innovate, and drive impact. AACSB-accredited schools have successfully undergone a rigorous review process conducted by their peers in the business education community, ensuring that they have the resources, credentials, and commitment needed to provide students with a first-rate, future-focused business education.  
"Business College, Beijing Union University’s commitment to earning accreditation is a true reflection of their dedication—not only to their students, alumni network, and greater business community, but to the higher education industry as a whole,” said Bryant. “Today’s students are tomorrow’s business leaders, and the addition of Business College, Beijing Union University to the network of AACSB-accredited business schools will have a lasting positive impact for their institution, both locally and globally.”
At the announcement meeting at Tempe, Florida, on July 19, 2022, AACSB also announced that other five business schools/colleges have earned accreditation in business.
