FESM at Nicolaus Copernicus University in the Premier League of Business Schools

The Faculty of Economic Sciences and Management (FESM) at the Nicolaus Copernicus University (NCU) in Toruń as the first and the only public school in Poland has earned accreditation by the AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

Founded in 1916, AACSB International is the longest serving global accrediting body for business schools that offer undergraduate, master and doctoral degrees in business and accounting.

The AACSB Accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business education, and has been earned by less than five percent of the world's business programs. Today, there are 740 business schools in 50 countries and territories that maintain the AACSB Accreditation. Similarly, 182 institutions maintain an additional specialized AACSB Accreditation for their accounting programs.

- It takes a great deal of commitment and determination to earn the AACSB Accreditation - said Robert D. Reid, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of the AACSB International. - Business schools must not only meet specific standards of excellence, but their deans, faculty, and professional staff must make commitment to ongoing continuous improvement to ensure that the institution will continue to deliver the highest quality of education to students.
