First in Taiwan – NSYSU’s College of Management Holds AACSB Accreditation for 3rd Time
April 1 (Taiwan Time), the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business formally announced that the College of Management of National Sun Yat-sen University has extended its business accreditation for the second time. By doing so, NSYSU has become the first institution in Taiwan to extend the highest honor in business school accreditation. NSYSU’s College of Management took the lead by choosing the newest 2013 review process, showing alignment with 15 global accreditation standards.

In 2005 NSYSU College of Management was the first domestic institution to achieve AACSB accreditation; and in 2010, it again led the pack by extending the business accreditation. At this time only 4 institutions in Taiwan had earned their initial accreditations. AACSB accreditation has been earned by less than 5% of the world’s business schools, now that NSYSU College of Management has successfully extended this hallmark of excellence twice; it achieved the highest status for its exemplary work.

Dr. Chin-Tarn Lee, Dean of the College of Management, NSYSU, said upon learning the good news that this honor belonged to all of his predecessors, the entire student faculty, colleagues and alumni. As without their continuous support and contributions and the roles in which they played, the College of Management would never have achieved the excellence as it did.

Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools. As of February 2015, 727 business schools in 48 countries that have earned AACSB Accreditation. Taiwan has 12 universities accredited for the first time, 4 having the status extended; but achieving top honors of a second extension requires the institution to pass the new and rigorous review process that was approved during the 2013 annual convention in Chicago, meeting the three pillars on which AACSB accreditation rests—engagement, innovation, and impact.

Lastly Dean Lee said the College shan’t be complacent as the result, and in the face of rapidly changing environment, the College will uphold humility, and continuing to enhance the quality of learning, training outstanding management personnel, and increase international academic interactions. The Dean also asks for advices, so that the College may be moved to betterment.
