Message to our Communities
To our 100,000 graduates, our current students, our talented and dedicated employees, and our communities who have provided great jobs and support to our Schools; we thank you and want you to be proud of the education provided during the past 140 years. We want to be clear that the findings from the Hennepin County Court case with the Minnesota Attorney General showed no widespread systemic fraud and no issues with the education we provide. We want you all to know the facts and to know that we are fighting to not have the schools close. For more background on what is happening, click here. While we work through this challenging time, we are working to find pathways for our students. It is our goal to make sure students have options to complete their degree with us or transfer credits to another accredited institution.
Minnesota School of Business
While some campuses have closed, a few other Minnesota campus will remain open through the end of September to help students get transcripts, answer questions and facilitate meetings with multiple institutions that are willing to accept credits from Globe/MSB. See articulation/transfer list.
The school is offering some classes online, through MSB Blaine and for graduate students at our Minneapolis location who do not need federal funding. Eligible students are those who can complete their program in the winter 2017 or spring 2017 quarters.
Globe officially discontinued operations at the South Dakota and Wisconsin campuses, as of Dec. 31, 2016. Globe transferred administration of those campuses for teach-out purposes to Broadview University. Students in South Dakota and Wisconsin have the option to complete their program at their existing location or online through a teach-out agreement approved with Broadview University.
About Broadview University
Broadview University, based in Utah, is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Universities.
The Hennepin County, Minnesota District Court issued an Order on Sept. 8, 2016, finding that Globe violated the Uniform Deceptive Trade Practices Act, Minnesota statute § 325D.44. As a result of this Order, the Minnesota Office of Higher Education (MOHE) issued an order revoking Globe’s and MSB’s registration with the state and ordering Globe and MSB to cease enrollment of new students.
Globe and MSB are currently under a show-cause directive from its accreditor, ACICS.
In addition, on Dec. 6, 2016, the U.S. Department of Education announced its decision to deny Globe’s and MSB’s participation in the Title IV student financial aid programs.
Globe and MSB have appealed the MOHE order.
