AACSB Accreditation, Faculty of Economics and Business Administration

The accreditation of Goethe University’s Faculty of Economics and Business Administration and its programs awarded by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) are proof of the Faculty's continuous commitment to excellence and optimization of its academic standards.

As an advocate for management education, AACSB International represents a combined influence of more than 1,350 educational institutions, businesses and organizations in 83 countries, representing more than 40,000 faculty members and over 1 million students.

AACSB-accredited schools have the highest quality faculty, relevant and challenging curriculum, and provide educational and career opportunities that are not found at other business schools. Less than 5% of the world's 13,000 business programs have earned AACSB accreditation.


Our goal is to ensure the quality of teaching and studies in our Master programs at a consistently high level. That is why we are regularly reviewed by system-accredited Goethe University and the international AACSB.
