The Odette School of Business Earns Prestigious AACSB Business Accreditation

Windsor, ON—The Odette School of Business (OSB) at the University of Windsor has earned accreditation by AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. This recognition is in addition to OSB being one of only eight Canadian business schools having ever been invited to full voting membership in the Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC).

”This achievement results directly from the hard work and dedication of our exceptional faculty, staff and students.”” said Dr. Allan Conway, Dean of the Odette School of Business. “It’s an exciting time for us at Odette and we are committed to continuing to provide our students an outstanding and incomparable business education experience”.  

The Odette School of Business has been consistently building a reputation as an innovative business school that offers a comprehensive business education with exceptional opportunities for students to develop valuable, practical and applied skills through progressive, experiential learning practices. The school currently enrolls 1600 students in its undergraduate program, approximately 320 students in its Masters of Management program, and 80 students in its customized MBA program.

AACSB Accreditation, the hallmark of excellence in business education, has been achieved by less than five percent of business programs worldwide. “It takes a great deal of commitment and determination to earn AACSB Accreditation,” said Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB International. “Business schools must not only meet specific standards of excellence, but their deans, faculty, and professional staff must make a commitment to ongoing continuous improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver the highest quality of education to students.”
