The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo College of Business and Economics (CoBE) was awarded reaccreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International.

“I am pleased that the AACSB Board has concurred with the recommendation of AACSB’s Continuous Improvement Review Committee, and decided to continue the accreditation of the UH Hilo College of Business and Education,” said College of Business and Economics Dean Krishna Dhir.

“I am most grateful to everyone in CoBE for their tireless work and commitment, and for the unstinted support of Chancellor Straney, the vice chancellors, my fellow deans, directors and division heads, throughout my tenure.”

AACSB accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide with less than five percent of the world’s 13,000 business programs earning AACSB accreditation.

The next scheduled AACSB re-accreditation visit will follow the submission of the college’s next fifth year report during the fall of 2019–2020.
