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.
The flexible BBA is a unique opportunity for College of Business students to easily double major in management, marketing, economics or finance taking few to no extra courses.
