The Suleman Dawood School of Business (SDSB) at LUMS is Pakistan's first business school to achieve accreditation by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Since 1916, AACSB has become a renowned global leader in assessing and evaluating business schools for programme quality, relevance, impact, and overall educational services.
The rigorous accreditation process, which lasts several years, weighs performance against 15 international standards. These standards include strategic management, innovation, learning and teaching, professional engagement, and active participation of students, faculty and staff.
As a result, just five percent of business schools in the world hold AACSB accreditation. SDSB is privileged to be one of the 856 AACSB accredited business schools in the world; a testament to the quality of research and pedagogy that makes it stand out not only in the region, but around the world.
