Since 1914 the Charles H. Lundquist College of Business has taught its students the critical skills they need to think for themselves, to be leaders in a dynamic world, and to make better decisions on behalf of the people and resources they manage. We are a top business school with a unique mission and vision that draws strength from our links to the Pacific Rim and the distinctive qualities of Oregon culture: innovation, sustainability, active lifestyles, financial stewardship, and respect for individuality and diversity within an increasingly global community.
The Lundquist College of Business is fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the highest accreditation standard for business schools internationally. The college’s undergraduate program was first accredited in 1923, and its accounting program was accredited in 1989. Only 746 (6 percent) of the world's 12,600 business schools are AACSB accredited. What's more, because our accounting program is accredited as well as our business school, we belong to a tiny elite of 178 programs—just 1.4 percent of the world's business schools—that have attained this distinction.
The University of Oregon is one of only two Pacific Northwest members of the Association of American Universities, is a member of the Association of Pacific Rim Universities and holds the distinction of a “very high research activity” ranking in the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.
