Mississauga, Ontario

Sheridan’s Faculty of Business has been accepted for membership by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the U.S.-based international management accreditation body.  “Our membership in AACSB will allow us to connect and interact with business educators in more than 70 countries,” says Dr. William Holmes, Dean of Sheridan’s Faculty of Business.  “As our Faculty continues to grow and expand our range of program offerings, enhanced access to the educational and benchmarking resources available through AACSB will ensure our programs remain current and on par with the best in the world.”

The AACSB has recently approved new education standards that emphasize social responsibility and ethics, a development that is reflected in the evolution of Sheridan’s own business programs.  Each of the college’s advanced diploma programs and the Global Business Management degree include an ethics component or dedicated course.  The Faculty is also host to an active group of students involved in ENACTUS, an international community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives and shape a better, more sustainable world.

AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business is a global, nonprofit membership organization of educational institutions, businesses, and other entities devoted to the advancement of management education. Established in 1916, AACSB International provides its members with a variety of products and services to assist them with the continuous improvement of their business programs and schools. Membership does not imply accreditation.
