The Association for Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) awarded accreditation to the Leavey School of Business in 1953, one of the first professional schools of business to be awarded this recognition.
The MBA program was recognized with accreditation in 1959, the first year graduate business students were enrolled at Santa Clara University. The Executive MBA program was accredited in 1999, the year students were enrolled there, and the Accelerated MBA program received recognition in the year of its inception, 2007.
Our four MS programs as well as our undergraduate business programs fall under the Leavey School’s general accredation by AACSB.
The Accounting Department earned separate accreditation from AACSB International in 1996, and is one of only five collegiate accounting departments in California to be so recognized.
