AACSB International Accreditation
The Master of Business Administration (MBA) program from the UND College of Business & Public Administration is accredited by AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
The mission of the AACSB International is to advance the quality management education worldwide through accreditation and thought leadership.
Fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide have earned the AACSB International accreditation—the highest standard in management education. The University of North Dakota was the first school in North Dakota to be AACSB accredited.
The University of North Dakota as a whole is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. UND has been accredited since 1913, when the Association was first organized.
For information on special accreditations the University has at the college, department, or program level, please see UND Accreditation.
Why is accreditation important?
Accreditation assures the quality of higher education institutions and programs. In the United States, accreditation is a voluntary, non-governmental, peer-review process that determines if established quality standards are being met.
- Accreditation is a major way for students, families, employers, government officials, and the media to know that an institution or program provides a quality education.
- Accreditation helps students choose quality college programs that qualify for federal financial aid.
- Accreditation enables employers to recruit graduates they know are well-prepared. Many employers will only provide tuition assistance to employees for accredited programs.
- Accreditation is used by registration, licensure, and certification boards to screen applicants.
- Accreditation gives colleges and universities a structured mechanism to assess, evaluate, and improve the quality of their programs.
