AACSB accreditation differentiates business and accounting programs from those at other institutions in terms of quality, rigor, and relevance. Only six percent of business schools worldwide are accredited by AACSB International.

NIBS Accredited LogoThe College is also accredited by the Network of International Business Schools (NIBS), an association of business schools from around the world which believe that the internationalization of business and the globalization of the economy are essential elements in the evolution of managerial practices. NIBS Accreditation makes a firm statement of an institution’s international vision to students, faculty and partner schools throughout the world.
