What does being AACSB-accredited mean?

It means being part of just 5% of business schools worldwide to have earned this distinction!

The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) Accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Less than 5% of the world's 13,000 business programs have earned AACSB Accreditation. The Black Hills State University AACSB-accredited School of Business produces graduates that are highly skilled and more desirable to employers than other non-accredited schools.

Millions of students want exactly what you want—a highly successful, rewarding career in business.

Employers want quality business graduates from quality business schools—graduates they know will perform on day one. This is why it is so important to choose an AACSB-accredited business degree program that will teach you the knowledge and skills employers require.
