PolyU SPEED Earns AACSB International Accreditation
The first and only self-financed tertiary education institution in Hong Kong to earn this business accreditation

Accreditation highly conducive to the prospects of PolyU SPEED graduates, especially those seeking further study with top business schools worldwide
PolyU SPEED has recently risen to international prominence by earning AACSB accreditation for its business-related degree programmes. Prof. Peter P. Yuen, Dean of the College of Professional and Continuing Education of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, said:

Bryant, executive vice president and chief accreditation officer of AACSB. “We congratulate The School of Professional Education and Executive Development (SPEED), The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Dean Peter P. Yuen and Director Jack M.K. Lo on earning accreditation and applaud the entire The School of Professional Education and Executive Development (SPEED), The Hong Kong Polytechnic University team—including the administration, faculty, staff, and students—for their roles in earning this respected honor.”
