SVSU College of Business and Management accreditation renewed by AACSB

Saginaw Valley State University's College of Business and Management will remain in elite company among the world’s business colleges accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, or AACSB.

The leading accrediting agency for business colleges recently extended the status for SVSU's undergraduate and graduate programs through 2018. SVSU first received accreditation from AACSB in 2002. Less than 5 percent of the 13,000 collegiate business programs worldwide are so accredited.

“It's an affirmation of the quality of our programs, both graduate and undergraduate,” said Rama Yelkur, dean of the College of Business and Management. “Particularly when international students are seeking out business degrees, that's something that indicates it's a high-quality program. It's a signal of quality, and a reflection upon our faculty and curriculum.”

SVSU's College of Business and Management offers programs leading to bachelor's and master's degrees, including the master of business administration, the bachelor of business administration, the bachelor of professional accountancy and the bachelor of arts. The bachelor of arts program is available for students with a major in economics. The bachelor of business administration program allows students to major in accounting, economics, finance, international business, management, industrial management, marketing and general business.
