RWTH Receives International Seal of Quality


The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, AACSB, which is considered worldwide to be the most renowned international accreditation organization for business education, has granted the School of Business and Economics at RWTH Aachen University full accreditation for another five years.

AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education and has been earned by less than five percent of business schools worldwide.

According to Professor Thomas Kittsteiner, the Dean of the School, the reaccreditation “is a confirmation of our high quality standards in teaching and research; it is the result of sustainable improvement processes implemented at our School as well as our ability to innovate.”

The team of international reviewers confirmed that the School of Business and Economics consistently implements its mission statement, that it demonstrates an organic collegial culture, and that it integrates the interests of all of its different stakeholders. Student involvement was particularly positively highlighted, as was the extensive range of E-learning products and services offered by the School.
