AACSB is an internationally recognized, specialized accrediting organization for the highest achieving business and accounting programs. The University was first accredited by AACSB in 1953. Since 2009, the following programs are accredited by the AACSB: Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA), Bachelor of Science in Management (BSM), Master in Business Administration (MBA),  Executive MBA (EMBA), Master of Science in Entrepreneurship and Innovation (MSEI), Master of Science in Financial Analysis (MSFA), and Master of Science in Organization Development (MSOD).


The Nonprofit Academic Centers Council (NACC) is an international membership association comprised of academic centers or programs at accredited colleges and universities that focus on the study of nonprofit/nongovernmental organizations, voluntary action, and/or philanthropy.  NACC accreditation serves as a signal that a university has a well-developed program while providing a brighter line than just guidelines in constructing a curriculum that specifically addresses the nonprofit and NGO sector. The Master of Nonprofit Administration (MNA) program was awarded NACC accreditation in 2019. 


NASPAA is an industry-respected network that ensures the rigorous standards of education in public policy, public affairs, and public and nonprofit administration. The Master of Public Administration (MPA) program was awarded NASPAA accreditation in 2012.
