Globe University and Minnesota School of Business-online are nationally accredited colleges, approved by Accrediting Council for Independent Schools and Colleges (ACICS) to offer master's, bachelor's and associate degrees.
In one word, quality. The process of accreditation includes examination of our online degree programs in areas including the following:
It is very important that an online college or university's accreditation is issued by an organization listed by the U.S. Department of Education as an authority on higher education. Only a few organizations, including ACICS, make that list. There is some confusion about the differences and similarities between regional and national accreditation. The Department of Education makes it clear that neither is better than the other. Minnesota School of Business chose national accreditation, a measure that relies on results-oriented factors and most closely with our goal of career preparation.
National accreditation is recognized by various organizations and means students in our online programs are eligible for financial aid. Employers often consider accreditation when hiring or issuing tuition reimbursement.
We invite you to call 1-877-655-7676 or contact our online division for more information on accreditation, our 130-year history, or online education at Minnesota School of Business.
