Recognized for Quality

In 1978, the Idaho State University College of Business became the first  business school in the state of Idaho to receive accreditation from the  international Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business  (AACSB).

The AACSB represents “the longest serving global association dedicated to  advancing management education worldwide,” and accredits less than five  percent of  schools granting business degrees in the world.  The College of Business’ accounting program is also separately accredited as one of only 189 schools holding both accounting and business accreditation.

Average Informatics Class Size

Informatics classes at ISU tend to be small, with an average of 25-45 students in core classes and 15- 20 students in informatics courses. Unlike many universities, Idaho State classes are taught by professors, not teaching assistants. Professors are highly accessible and are dedicated to helping students align their educational goals with their career objectives. Smaller class sizes can really make for a tighter-knit educational experience when it comes to your academics and the connections and friendships you will make that will better you both academically and in your career.

Required Internship
