I've heard of AMBA accreditation but what is AASCB. Is it as good?

Hi Alan,

The AASCB is actually the oldest accreditation body for business schools. From my research, I see that it varies from AMBA accreditation in that AASCB looks at the whole organisation while AMBA evaluates individual programs.

You can find a list of AASCB universities on SearchMBA here.

AACSB accreditation for business schools does not appear to be a very high bar, as many low selectivity schools have it and graduate large numbers of business majors. So it may be best thought of as a minimum standard for a business major degree program, but not otherwise of that great importance.

However, many students do go into "business" jobs after graduating in non-business majors. As noted above, MBA program admissions tend to expect work experience after bachelor's degree graduation.
