When choosing an accounting program, you want to be sure it’s one that has an exceptional reputation in the field. One of the most respected authorities in accounting education is the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International.

Stonehill’s business program, including our accounting and seven other business majors – is AACSB accredited. With that distinction, Stonehill is among an elite group of higher education institutions that make up less than five percent 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
  • Religions
  • 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.

National Rankings Are a Benchmark of Exceptional Programs 

Another valuable tool for students interested in finding a quality accounting program is national rankings. Many organizations involved in assessing the quality of accounting programs will choose a select few for inclusion in their national rankings. This can be useful for students looking to narrow down their choices. 

Whether it’s Bloomberg magazine’s Best U.S. Business School rankings, or similar assessments by Money, The New York Times and Forbes, Stonehill stands high nationally. Recent rankings include:

I learned how to leverage strengths that will help me drive my career, about the impacts of ethical and courageous leadership, how corporations can think like startups, how to build relationships through networking, and about the importance of body language in business
