Accreditation standards from AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business mandate that our curriculum must have a liberal arts education component that encompasses at least 50 percent of your undergraduate program. Up to nine semester hours of economics and six semester hours of statistics may be counted toward the AACSB requirement. Therefore, you must complete at least 45 credit hours outside of business, economics and statistics. The AACSB Requirement section of your Academic Advisement Report (AAR), found in your HUB Student Center, also can help monitor your progress and identify courses that may be used to satisfy this requirement.
