DALLAS, TX – May 15, 2023 – Academic Partnerships (AP), a leading online facilitator helping regional universities expand access to top-quality, affordable and workforce relevant education, announced today that they have become Business Education Alliance members of AACSB International (AACSB). This prestigious global nonprofit association synonymous with promoting the highest standards in business education connects educators, students, and businesses to achieve a common goal: to create the next generation of great leaders. As an international accrediting body, AACSB is known, worldwide, for awarding the longest-standing, most recognized form of specialized accreditation that an institution and its business programs can earn.
As a leader in higher education, AP is committed to further aligning itself with institutions that have a high standard of excellence. By partnering with AACSB in this way, AP will strengthen its connections with like-minded organizations and institutions.
Both AP and AACSB help to drive positive change through business education. Because many of AP’s university partner business schools and their programs are AACSB-accredited, it is a natural extension of our partnerships to support these efforts.
Becoming a member of AACSB helps AP continue to hear from the universities it serves and shape its offerings to meet the changing needs of schools and their students.
“Joining the Business Education Alliance is an empowering step towards building a more connected, globally diverse future,” said Geoff Perry, executive vice president and global chief membership officer at AACSB. “We are excited about the addition of Academic Partnerships and the collaboration and innovation they will bring.”
AP is a leading online facilitator focused primarily on adult learners and a partner to approximately 55 universities, primarily regional universities, across North America.
