    Duquesne University Business School Earns Accreditation

    Duquesne University's Palumbo•Donahue School of Business again has earned accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB).

    Since 1961, when the school became the first in the Western New York/Pennsylvania region to earn this elite ranking, it has met the standards of excellence for institutions worldwide that deliver the highest quality of education to business students.

    "I congratulate our dedicated faculty on this continued achievement, which reflects our dedication to providing rich and relevant business education," said Dean Alan Miciak.

    AACSB accreditation, a hallmark of excellence in business education, has been earned by less than 5 percent of the world's business programs. The AACSB, founded in 1916, is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in business and accounting.
