Luncheon celebrates school’s accreditation status

The Indiana University Northwest School of Business and Economics will host a luncheon at the Radisson Hotel at Star Plaza, 800 E. 81st Ave. in Merrillville, on Wednesday, April 20 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 per person or $250 for a table of 10 (a table includes eight corporate representatives and two students). Corporate sponsorships are also available.

The "Celebration of Accreditation" luncheon marks the fulfillment of the school’s recent accreditation status with the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). This monumental achievement now enables the school to retain and recruit qualified faculty, and puts them in the top 15 percent of prestigious business schools worldwide offering quality management education.

"This is truly a landmark event for the School of Business and Economics. Accreditation by AACSB International symbolizes our commitment to providing the highest quality business education for our students through a continuous improvement environment that merits the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide," said Bruce Bergland, Chancellor of IU Northwest. "We are extremely pleased to receive such prestigious recognition."

AACSB International is a not-for-profit organization consisting of education organizations and corporations. Its mission is excellence in management education in colleges and universities. Headquartered in Tampa, Fla., AACSB International is the premier accrediting agency and service organization for business schools.

To achieve accreditation, business programs must satisfy the highest quality standards related to strategic management of resources, interactions of faculty and students in the educational process, and achievement of learning goals in degree programs. During the accreditation process, the School of Business and Economics was visited and evaluated by business school deans with detailed knowledge of management education applying the accreditation standards that are widely accepted in the educational community.

Please RSVP for tickets by Friday, April 15. For more information, please contact the School of Business and Economics at (219) 980-6633.
