In 2002, the Faculty of Business Administration became the first business faculty in Atlantic Canada to earn AACSB International accreditation. AACSB is the longest-serving global accrediting body for business schools, providing a professional standard that recognizes a high-quality teaching environment, a commitment to continuous improvement, and curricula that is responsive to the needs of business. It is the highest distinction that business schools anywhere in the world can receive.
CEWIL’s mission is to foster and advance post-secondary co-operative education in Canada. Memorial’s co-operative commerce program was first accredited in 1980 – the first business degree in Canada to earn this distinction.
