In 2014, the Brennan School of Business earned accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) -- the largest and most prestigious accrediting body of business schools. Of the world's more than 13,000 business programs, less than 5 percent have been accredited by AACSB, which conducts a rigorous evaluation of teaching, research, curricula development and student learning.
AACSB accreditation of a school is important to students because it signals a quality learning environment, certified faculty and researchers, and a comprehensive business curriculum that can withstand strict scrutiny. Because of this, graduates of AACSB-accredited schools such as the Brennan School of Business, are more marketable to prospective employers.
The Brennan School of Business has also achieved accreditation for its Master of Business Administration, its Master of Science in Accounting and its undergraduate programs in accounting, business administration and international business from the Accreditation Council for Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), demonstrating that it has met standards of business education that promote teaching excellence.

Students are limited to taking a maximum of eight Brennan School of Business courses (in the disciplines of accounting, business administration, and/or economics) without declaring a major within the Brennan School. However, all students are welcome to enroll in up to eight accounting, business, international business, and economics courses on an elective basis or to complete an academic minor.
This program provides opportunities for the well-prepared student to work in the area of international business. An internship is done as required course work or as independent study. The experience of on-the-job training gives the student a realistic view of the major field and often widens the horizon of job choice.
