        The value of the MBA comes from the mindset one develops in business school

        Here's the little secret that the Harvard Business Schools of the world don't talk about — "Business education is the same, everywhere," says Dean Woods (2018), a Wharton graduate, start-up executive, recovering consultant and writer.
        Take accounting — a convention adopted as GAAP and IFRS. "These accounting rules are the exact same everywhere in the country. You're not going to learn some brilliant accounting rule at Harvard that nobody else knows."
        "What about finance? The mechanics of everything from the ROI calculation to a sophisticated LBO model are the exact same everywhere. At it's core, finance is just math. Stock picking is the exact same. Bobby Axelrod insider-trading aside, everyone can look up the technicals of a stock in about 10 seconds and make an investment decision."
        "Or strategy? It's a sexy buzzword, but is an MBA program really the best place to learn it? Brian Chesky of Airbnb is a personal hero and one of the top strategic thinkers in the business world. No MBA. Steve Jobs definitely wasn't either..."
        Most of the MBA course material is available online. "Matt Damon says: 'You're going to realize you dropped $150K on an education you could have gotten for a $1.50 in late charges from the public library.' "
        "The value of the MBA came from the mindset one develops in business school. It comes from the desire to learn, to set and achieve goals, to cultivate a growth mindset, to try new challenges, to force yourself to talk to someone new. The value of the MBA is all intangible."

    Academe's reputation as a place of ideas where the freedom of expression enshrined in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Humans Rights is especially valued and protected.

    AASBI accredits schools of business in countries that observe and guarantee the

  • United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other rights, including the right to
  • Life, liberty and security of the person
  • without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
  • AASBI believes in the integrity of the individual as opposed to the despotism of the state as the basis of democracy, and that education must be free from political control. — Ref.: Ralph Cooper Hutchison, "Facism and Higher Education," The Atlantic June 1939 Issue.

    Holistic approach: The applying school is the best judge of its student-expectations, its faculty, course requirements and learning outcomes — varying widely between cultures and continents. AASBI does not mentor, regiment and subject the academic experience to uniform Western standards, or assess the school's powerful impact on — or its well-mannered detachment from — the demands of commerce & industry masquerading under the motto of public interest; except for the basic affirmations listed on the mentioned application form, and the all-important observation of universal human rights by the institution and the nation state. Self-assessment studies and peer reviews are of no interest, and we do not normally conduct institutional visits.

    The Application Process:   Invited or self-inivited schools of business submit an Applicationn Checklist and Affirmation to us. On acceptance of the application, we send out our invoice for dues for the initial 3-year accreditation period for payment, followed by the school's AASBI Accreditation certificate and license authorizing the use of the trademarked AASBI Accredited certification mark(s).

    AASBI does not charge an application &/or admission fee. Nominal annual dues apply.

    The entire AASBI Business Accreditation process for invited, pre-examined, recognized and eligible fast-tracked schools of business is completed within 30 days.
