The Value of Accreditation

photo of three business studentsThe Raj Soin College of Business is fully accredited at both the undergraduate and graduate level by the AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, which is the highest accrediting body for business colleges in the world. Less than five percent of business programs in the world achieve this standard of excellence. This means that our faculty, curriculum, and all other educational resources are thoroughly and professionally evaluated by an independent board of educators and have been found to be of exceptional quality.  As an added distinction, the Department of Accountancy's programs are separately accredited by AACSB International. The accreditation applies to the department's undergraduate major and its Master of Accountancy program. Only 178 accredited institutions have separately accredited accounting programs. The Raj Soin College of Business faculty and staff are committed to exceeding the standards advanced by the AACSB.
