In 2014, ŠKODA AUTO University successfully completed the accreditation process of the American Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, obtaining the prestigious ACBSP business program accreditation under all of its standards and criteria.

The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) is a leading, specialised accreditation association for business administration education. It promotes, recognises and rewards excellent education quality. The association highlights the benefits of excellence in education and emphasises that students must learn how to learn.

ACBSP accredits programmes focused on business and accounting at the Bachelor, Master and Doctoral level worldwide. ACBSP was recognised by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) in 2001 and again in 2011 and was the first accreditation association offering specialised accreditation of business studies at all levels. ACBSP promotes continuous improvement and recognises outstanding quality through the accreditation of business education across the globe.

The accreditation process takes at least 18 months. If an institution is unable to complete the accreditation process within five years, it is excluded from the assessment. ŠKODA AUTO University was accepted as a member of ACBSP in November 2012 and the accreditation decision was delivered in 2014, meaning the accreditation process took two years. It was among the shortest. The speed of the process proves the ŠKODA AUTO’s high level of preparation in terms of compliance with the highest standards of quality higher education at a global level.

ACBSP accreditation is clearly beneficial both for the students and graduates of ŠKODA AUTO University, adding a new dimension to their education and opening a path to other markets beyond Europe.
„ŠKODA AUTO University employs a phenomenal strategy, unique study programmes with clear links from the Bachelor to the Master level, provided by a team of highly qualified academic staff. The strong link to the industry represents a major competitive advantage of ŠKODA AUTO University.“ Dr. Farah Zakery, Chairwoman of the ACBSP Accreditation Committee of ŠKODA AUTO University
