FLORENCE – The University of North Alabama College of Business has been re-accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB) for another five years. AACSB is a worldwide nonprofit membership organization of educational institutions, businesses, and other entities devoted to the advancement of management education. 

“AACSB accreditation is a seal of confidence that our business degrees are of the highest quality,” said Dr. Greg Carnes, Dean of the College of Business. “While this is the same business accreditation that the larger schools in the state of Alabama have, it is important that students know UNA is not a smaller version of the SEC schools.  Rather, we have a distinctive mission that is student-centered. This is a great experience for students who want their professors to know them by name and mentor them as they prepare for their professional careers.”

Of the more than 16,000 business schools that offer degree programs, fewer than 5% are awarded AACSB accreditation. This designation recognizes universities which have achieved the highest standard of excellence in business education worldwide, online, or in-person.
