Regional accounting professionals to celebrate UT’s accounting department’s distinctive accreditation

Accounting professionals from throughout northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan will attend a celebratory dinner recognizing the recent departmental accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) of the accounting department in The University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation. The event will be held at 5:30 p.m Tuesday, May 19 in The Inverness Club in Toledo.

The accounting department received notification of the accreditation in March following an onsite review of the program by the AACSB accreditation team earlier this year. It was the first attempt by the COBI accounting department to obtain the distinctive accreditation.

“This is a voluntary accreditation obtained by only 1.3 percent (183 institutions) of accounting programs in business schools around the world and it would not have happened without the extensive and generous support the accounting department has received from accounting professionals in the regional business community,” said Dr. Hassan HassabElnaby, chair of the department. “Their continuing involvement with our students and graduates through mentoring, internships, jobs and financial support significantly contributes to our program’s success, so we wanted to thank the individuals and companies in the accounting profession for their mutually beneficial relationships with the college”

“The expertise of these accounting professionals creates a high standard of performance that both informs and inspires our students,” Dr. HassabElnaby added, “which further ensures employers in this region and across the country that our accounting department graduates are ready to perform on day one of their jobs.”

The AASCB is an association of educational institutions, businesses and other organizations devoted to the advancement of higher education, and is the premier accrediting agency of collegiate business schools and accounting programs worldwide.
