College of Business Administration

Our Business Administration programs are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB-International), the premier accrediting agency for business school programs. Less than one-third of U.S. business school programs and less than 5% of programs worldwide hold this accreditation. AACSB-International accreditation assures quality and promotes excellence and continuous improvement.
