Brooklyn College’s Business School earns reaccreditation from AACSB

Brooklyn College is proud to announce that the Koppelman School of Business has earned an extension of accreditation from the International Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the global accrediting body for business schools.

Offering degrees in accounting, business administration, economics and finance, the Koppelman School is the only accredited business school in Brooklyn and is part of an elite group of schools worldwide that offer business degrees at the bachelor’s or higher level.

“I congratulate everyone at the Murray Koppelman School of Business for securing this prestigious distinction,” said President Michelle J. Anderson. “Dean Qing Hu and the entire Koppelman faculty are doing extraordinary work to prepare the business leaders of tomorrow through hands-on experience and professional mentorship.”

Here are just a few of the programs and initiatives that distinguish Koppelman:

  • CUNY’s first concentration in Diversity and Inclusion in Business for the school’s undergraduate BBA Business Administration Program, which incorporates the liberal arts and focuses on racial, ethnic and gender inequality.
  • Popular, fully online MS degrees in business administration and accounting are designed to be completed in one year for full-time students or dedicated working professionals.
  • The MD Sass Investment Institute provides a unique experiential learning opportunity for finance and investment students.
  • Executive-in-Residence Program and Business Matters! an annual conference that connects students with experiences and opportunities through business industry leaders and successful alumni.
  • Koppelman Entrepreneurship Competitions that foster creative thinking and support student entrepreneurs.

“Being the only accredited business school in Brooklyn gives our students a competitive edge,” said Dean Hu. “I would like to thank our faculty, corporate partners, and alumni business leaders who engage our students with initiatives like the Executive-in-Residence Program and Business Matters! events as well as experiential and experiential learning opportunities and mentorship programs. World-class faculty, real-world experience and alumni engagement are what set Koppelman apart.”

One recent example of how Koppelman connected students with industry experts was a guest lecture workshop with Assistant Professor Cindy Pham’s class on the ins and outs of selling in the real estate industry with Citysphere, a leading New York-based real estate firm. This is another example of how the Koppelman School bridges academic learning and practical industry insights.

Student Daviti Mkheidze appreciated the guest lecture session.

“Listening to real estate expert Patrice Bericourt’s inspirational real estate journey was a unique learning experience in mastering the art of selling,” said Mkheidze. “I learned the importance of building relationships, communicating effectively, and taking rejection as an opportunity to grow.”
