Drucker School Achieves Global Re-Accreditation

Drucker AACSB Re-accreditation

The Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management has received confirmation of its global re-accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The Drucker School joins the company of less than 5 percent of business schools worldwide to earn the prestigious recognition.

“The alignment between our Drucker Strategic Plan and the association’s focus on societal impact is compelling,” said Dave Sprott, PhD, Henry Y. Hwang Dean of the Drucker School. “A key aspect of Peter Drucker’s philosophy is that business plays a vital role in a functioning society. This humanistic approach to improving the world is at the heart of what we teach at the Drucker School.”

The AACSB review team concurred that Drucker’s philosophy is well integrated throughout the school: “It is foundational in terms of how students are trained, guides faculty interactions with students, is salient in why students choose to study at Drucker, and is embraced by external community members. It is rare to see such alignment around purpose.”

AACSB accreditation reflects rigorous world-class standards in management and business education. As of today, about 1,000 institutions in 60 countries and territories have earned the recognition. The Drucker School’s next AACSB on-site review will take place in 2027, reflecting the organization’s emphasis on continual improvement.
