MGSM is accredited by the international accreditation body AACSB International (AACSB) — The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

AACSB Accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. AACSB International is the longest serving global association dedicated to advancing management education worldwide, and accredits 755 of the world's best business schools across 51 countries and territories. AACSB-accredited schools produce graduates that are considered highly skilled and more desirable to employers than graduates of non-accredited schools.

Achieving accreditation is a process of rigorous internal review, evaluation, and adjustment and can take several years to complete. The AACSB Accreditation Standards require a high quality teaching environment, a commitment to continuous improvement, and a curriculum responsive to the needs of businesses.

MGSM is very proud to be accredited by AACSB.
