On 4 March, 2016,  AACSB International’s Initial Accreditation Committee granted eligibility to the Özyeğin University Business School to start the AACSB accreditation process. 
 
Since January 2015, the Özyeğin University 
Business School is a member of AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (www.aacsb.edu/about).
