GSIM, IUJ Earns AACSB International Accreditation
From February 20, 2018, the Graduate School of International Management (GSIM), IUJ has proudly obtained accreditation from AACSB International, the world’s leading authority on quality assurance of business schools.
Please refer to the AACSB General announcement, AACSB’s Newsroom, and the Regional announcement which has been sent to around 100 reporters across our immediate region by AACSB.
IUJ has become one of the four AACSB accredited universities in Japan up to date, and the first accredited English-medium university in Japan, offering graduate degree programs.
About GSIM’s AACSB Journey
GSIM started its AACSB accreditation journey in 2014.
Since then, GSIM has undergone significant transformations in its mission, policies, curriculum, assurance of learning, faculty research and sufficiency to comply with AACSB standards.
In July 2017, GSIM submitted its final report to AACSB. In November 2017, three peer review team members visited our campus. GSIM is now one of its way to make continuous improvement.
“The whole school is excited about obtaining AACSB Accreditation, through which we are committed to providing a high-quality education while striving to reach our highest potential in the future,” said IUJ President Hiroyuki Itami, and IUJ GSIM Dean Wenkai Li.
“We would like to thank our AACSB mentor, peer-review team members, and AACSB chief executives and staff for their immeasurable help and guidance. We also would like to thank the excellent and tireless work by GSIM students, alumni, faculty, staff, IUJ senior leadership, and other stakeholders.”
