PolyU SPEED Earns AACSB International Accreditation

AACSB logo


PolyU SPEED has recently risen to international prominence by earning AACSB accreditation for its business-related degree programmes.


  • The first and only self-financed tertiary education institution in Hong Kong to earn this business accreditation
  • Less than 6% of all business schools are AACSB-accredited, and they are considered the best in the world
  • Accreditation highly conducive to the prospects of PolyU SPEED graduates, especially those seeking further study with top business schools worldwide



Prof. Peter P. Yuen, Dean of the College of Professional and Continuing Education of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, said, “We are excited by the AACSB accreditation. Currently, PolyU SPEED is the only self-financing institution in Hong Kong to earn this accreditation. This is an affirmation of our mission and the quality of our business programmes.”


Joining Ranks with Top Business Schools Worldwide


PolyU SPEED now joins ranks with top business schools around the world including the seven other AACSB accredited business schools in Hong Kong, all of which are UGC-funded universities. This means that, by enrolling in AACSB-accredited PolyU SPEED programmes, students can be assured that they will receive a first-rate, future-focused business education highly conducive to their future career or further study.  In particular, if they plan to go for the latter, they will soon find out that the world’s top business schools are much more ready and willing to admit students coming from AACSB-accredited schools.
