Keith Busse School of Business Receives Accreditation

In December, USF’s Keith Busse School of Business and Entrepreneurial Leadership was awarded initial accreditation of its business programs by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). ACBSP offers specialized accreditation to institutions of higher learning with business schools and programs.

The North Central Association of Colleges and Universities certifies all University of Saint Francis programs. However, the accreditation from ACBSP specifically certifies that USF’s business school programs (including the new online Master of Business Administration) meet rigorous ACBSP educational standards and provide the highest quality business education.

ACBSP accreditation is something school counselors look for when offering college guidance counseling to students interested in business. The accreditation assures them that they are directing students to institutions that offer a certifiably excellent business education.

The ACBSP accreditation is good news for USF alumni seeking graduate business degrees, too. They can be assured of a top-tier graduate business education at the exceptional value of a 50 percent graduate studies alumni discount.
