Alcorn’s School of Business gets accreditation reaffirmed

Alcorn State University’s School of Business is still one of the best institutions to earn a businesses education.

The board of commissioners of the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) reaffirmed the accreditation status for Alcorn’s School of Business and its programs. The School was initially accredited by ACBSP in 2013.

ACBSP is a leading specialized accreditation association for business education.

ACBSP was the first to offer specialized business accreditation at all degree levels.

Dr. Akash Dania, associate professor of finance, is honored to have been a part of the School’s success.

“We are delighted and proud to have the continued external recognition of the strengths of School of Business programs,” said Dania, who also serves as director of graduate business programs and coordinator of School of Business accreditation. “We are an exceptional business school. It is an honor to have our accreditation status reaffirmed.”

Dania said that the new accreditation status will help the School accomplish its goals.

“Reaffirmation of our School’s accreditation will help in our overall goal to provide quality programs, recruitment and retention of students. We are excited about the reaffirmation as we diligently work hard to introduce relevant new programs and concentrations.”
