Business Accreditations & Initiatives
Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business
The caliber of Stonehill’s Business programs has not only helped graduates launch successful careers, it has also garnered the attention of the world’s leading business accreditation organizations.
The College has earned accreditation from The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. With that distinction, Stonehill is among an elite group of higher education institutions that make up less than 5% of the world’s business schools.
AACSB certification requires global awareness as a main goal of business education and it is an area in which Stonehill excels. We integrate globalization into the curriculum with the study of:
- Foreign languages
- World cultures
- World economies
- Political systems
Our focus on global awareness is reflected in the fact that Stonehill is ranked as one of the top baccalaureate institutions for study abroad programs.
CFA Recognition Program
Stonehill has been welcomed into the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute University Recognition Program. With this recognition, Stonehill has been acknowledged for incorporating the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge into the Finance Program curriculum. The program positions students well to obtain the Chartered Financial Analyst designation, which has become the most respected and recognized investment credential in the world.
