Building on Excellence

We strive for excellence in a variety of ways: 

  • San AACSBDiego State University's Fowler College of Business was an early adopter in committing to maintain the high quality standards set forth by AACSB International (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). Since 1959 both the College of Business Administration and Charles W. Lamden School of Accountancy have maintained full accreditation through AACSB. These standards define quality and continuous improvement in collegiate business education.
  • By admitting a diverse, highly motivated class. (Student Stats Report)
