Politecnico di Milano obtains the international AACSB certification

The School of Management awarded with the three most authoritative accreditations for Business Schools

The School of Management of Politecnico di Milano has achieved international AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) certification; established in 1916, the AACSB is the world's longest- running business school accreditation body. AACSB-accredited schools undergo a rigorous review process to verify their resources, credentials, and commitment to students and achievements in providing a world-class future-oriented and innovative education. Recognition by AACSB accredits the entire organisation, including administration and accounting, providing internationally recognised certification.

Globally, less than six per cent of schools with undergraduate and postgraduate business administration courses hold this certification.

AACSB’s recognition is in addition to two other prestigious certifications: EQUIS-EFMD Quality Improvement System was obtained in 2007 and AMBA-The Association of MBAs in 2012. The School of Management of Politecnico di Milano holds the “Triple crown”, i.e. the three most authoritative accreditations for Business Schools.

Politecnico di Milano Rector Ferruccio Resta said:

The AACSB certification is a great accomplishment for our university. It acknowledges the quality of our teaching, the preparation of our faculty and the international dimension achieved by the School of Management and has been widely confirmed today. It is a starting point to leap forward, to place higher education at the centre of economic and social recovery. This accreditation reaffirms the value of the Politecnico’s expertise and knowledge as essential resources for the growth of our cities, businesses and regions.

Politecnico di Milano School of Management Dean Alessandro Perego said:

International accreditations represent a fundamental tool for our school which is helpful to strengthen the quality of teaching, research and social commitment, in a continuous comparison with the most innovative international framework. We are proud to receive the AACSB certification, a goal that rewards our efforts and allows us to complete the three most prestigious international accreditations. I am sure this achievement will encourage members of the School of Management of Politecnico di Milano to persevere in their pursuit of excellence.
