It is only one of 178 colleges accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB)1. AACSB International accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools by advancing management education through thought leadership.

Last Friday, WKU’s Gordon Ford College of Business recognized current students, faculty, staff and alumni achievements at their 20th annual recognition dinner, with over 300 in attendance. Fisher and Reeves were recognized for this year’s Alumni awards – Fisher named Recent Alumni, since graduating in 2008, and Reeves named overall Alumni.

To be considered for the award, alumni must fulfill outstanding achievements in one or more of the following eligibility requirements:

• Nominees must have attended or graduated from Western Kentucky University or the Bowling Green College of Commerce with an interest or program related to study in Business.

“I’m proud to be a WKU alum, and honored to be recognized for this award,” Fisher explains. “As an AACSB internationally recognized school, Western provided me with the tools and knowledge I needed for a solid foundation early on in my financial planning career. This extensive educational training in addition to the life-long mentoring relationships with my professors, especially Dr. Indu Chhachhi, are the true reasons for my successful career.”

“This award is an honor and testament to the dedication of WKU’s business students,” says Reeves, CEO of ARGI. “I’m proud to have graduated from this school – a school which I believe is dedicated to instilling education, teamwork and integrity in each student at the Gordon Ford College of Business.
