AACSB Accreditation Team Visits the FCBE
Over February 20-22, 2011, the Fogelman College of Business & Economics hosted an accreditation visit by a Peer Review Team representing the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business – International (AACSB), the premier accrediting agency for business schools. The College was up for its five-year Maintenance of Accreditation Review for both business and accounting accreditation. Peer Review Team members were Dean H. Fenwick Huss, Georgia State University (Team Chair); Dr. Mary Stone, University of Alabama (Accounting Chair); Dean Robert Scherer, Cleveland State University (Business Member); and Dr. Gerald Lobo, University of Houston, (Accounting Member).

During the Peer Review Team’s intensive campus visit, members met with many groups of faculty, including some key College committees, faculty leaders of various academic programs and initiatives, and President Shirley Raines and Provost Ralph Faudree. In addition, the team met with many College alumni and friends at a reception at the home of U of M alums, George and Betty Johnson.

Following the completion of the Peer Review Team report and submission and approval of its report by the AACSB Board of Directors, the College will be notified of the results of the accreditation review in April.
