AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) announced the accreditation of CJCU’s College of Management on April 29th, 2021. The College of Management made it to the list of the top 6% of business schools in the world. Stephanie M. Bryant, Executive Vice President and Chief Accreditation Officer of AACSB, congratulated CJCU’s College of Management upon its accreditation and praised Lin, Chieh-Yu, the head of College of Management, faculty members, the management team and students for their accomplishment.
CJCU’s College of Management joined AACSB in 2016 and established an AACSB recognized office to promote AACSB accreditation and related matters later in August of the same year. The College of Management’s interviewing process for AACSB accreditation started in March, 2021 and officially obtained the accreditation at the end of April. It is noteworthy that the entire process, from promotion to accreditation for the College, took less than five years, and it was the first school to obtain the accreditation among the business schools in the country that joined AACSB around the same time.
Due to COVID 19, the interviewing process for the accreditation was conducted via video conference. With the help of the school’s IT team, the accreditation process was successful and CJCU became the first university in Taiwan to complete the accreditation process via video conference.
AACSB is the world’s largest business education alliance, which provides quality assurance and accredits the world’s top business schools. As of the end of April 2021, approximately 900 schools were accredited by AACSB globally, and CJCU was the 27th school in Taiwan to gain its AACSB accreditation. Receiving the AACSB accreditation shows that CJCU’s College of Management’s achievement in strategy development, financial governance, faculty structure, students’ learning outcomes, research results, globalization and societal impact are recognized internationally. The College is now on the list of top business schools, endeavoring to establish sister schools, develop a joint degree program, foster academic exchange to promote globalization, and cooperate with the world’s top business schools.
