The accreditation states that “students receive high quality business education from an institution that values excellence, innovation and continuous improvement.”
Lakehead University’s Faculty of Business Administration has had its AACSB accreditation extended for five years and now includes the Orillia and Thunder Bay campuses.
The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business peer review team met with faculty, staff, students and alumni in mid-March to lead this intense peer review process. Several aspects of the Faculty of Administrative Affairs degree programs were assessed, including instructional strategies, program quality, learning outcomes, and student achievement.
“I would like to thank all of the faculty, staff, students and others who have supported these efforts,” said Dr. David Richards, Dean of the Faculty of Business Administration.
