School has AACSB in business but not specifically in accounting

I am currently deciding between attending sfsu or csu Fullerton for accounting. I noticed that csu Fullerton is AACSB accredited for both business and accounting, but sfsu is only accredited for business. Should this affect my decision for which school to attend?

    The extra AACSB accounting accreditation is great; however, I would not necessarily consider it a deal breaker. However, I would be more concerned about the on-campus recruiting opportunities and number of graduates that get jobs with top firms or companies! As you can probably tell from my screen name, I am not in the California market and defer to others for specific advice concerning those two schools.

    ChicagoBear raised a good point. I am from CA and have been through the campus recruiting process, but not very familiar with the CSUs (though I know some CSU graduates do land jobs with large companies). For both CSUF and SFSU, you might check with their placement offices to find out how many different companies recruit at the respective campuses and how many students actually received job offers. You might also want to check for statistics on how many students from both campuses eventually find jobs after graduation if they were not able to get offers from the campus interviews.
