Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts receives seal of approval

 

Lucerne – The School of Business at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts has received accreditation from the world’s leading organization for the certification of business schools. This makes it one of the few business schools worldwide that have received this seal of approval.

 

The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) has certified the School of Business at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. This makes it one of the few business schools in the world to have this prestigious accreditation. According to a press release, only around 6 percent of universities bear this seal of approval, including the American Ivy League universities Harvard and Yale.

 

The AACSB’s seal of approval improves job prospects for graduates. The accreditation placed positive emphasis on the fact that teaching and research are oriented toward the needs of the economy. The Director of the School of Business, Christine Böckelmann, is quoted in the press release saying: “Our ambition to provide graduates with excellent employability has paid off with the accreditation.”

 

Additionally, she adds that it is now easier to establish international collaborations with universities in other countries. This eliminates any doubts about what a university of applied sciences actually is, since the certificate attests to an internationally high academic level of staff, students, teaching content, and research.

 

It took a long time to come this far: The preparation process took three years, and the procedure itself spanned five years. Andreas Liebrich, Head of International Accreditation at the School of Business at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts says: “We are now all the more pleased to be able to hold the certificate in our hands.”
