The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) announced it has re-accredited Dominican University's Brennan School of Business, a recognition only 5 percent of the world's business schools achieve. AACSB recognizes excellence in teaching, research and professional engagement, curriculum development, student learning and strategic management and innovation. The Brennan received its initial accreditation in 2014, when it was the only AACSB-accredited business school in Chicago's western suburbs.

Roberto Curci, dean of the Brennan School of Business, said the achievement acknowledges how the school's mission reflects its core values of compassion and truth. 

"This re-accreditation reaffirms the school's commitment to developing successful business leaders through a strong foundation in ethics, experiential learning opportunities across all programs, international study, and a comprehensive career development program," Curci said in a statement. 

Founded in 1916, AACSB calls itself the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools, and the largest business education network. More than 800 institutions across 54 countries and territories have earned AACSB accreditation.
