SOU’s School of Business Receives Accreditation

Both Undergrad and Graduate Programs Receive Endorsement from Global Business Accreditation Organization

(Ashland, ORE) – The Accreditation Council for Business Schools & Programs (ACBSP) has granted accreditation for the undergraduate and graduate programs of Southern Oregon University’s School of Business. ACBSP is a global organization that has accredited hundreds of colleges and universities around the world.

“I’m ecstatic. This is a major milestone in our development,” says SOU School of Business Dean Raj Parikh. “It means we meet global standards of excellence for faculty, teaching, student achievement, learning outcomes and administrative processes.”

“It also means SOU’s School of Business will have even more appeal to international students,” says Dean Parikh. “And it means our undergrads who choose to move on will have a better chance of being admitted to competitive graduate programs.”

“Achieving accreditation is due to all of the hard work by my colleagues in the School of Business,” says Dean Parikh, “especially professors Rene Ordonez and Donna Lane. I’m very proud of our faculty and students.”

It’s the second major achievement for the SOU School of Business in the past year. Last July, SOU master’s in business administration (MBA) students’ test scores ranked in the top 10% on the MBA Major Field Test (MFT) administered at 130 universities in the United States.

The SOU School of Business offers one-year and a two-year MBA programs, and a master’s in management (MiM) degree taught locally and at the Universidad de Guanajuato in Mexico. At the undergraduate level, the School of Business offers the bachelor of science and the bachelor of arts degrees with concentrations in management, marketing, hospitality and tourism management, and accounting. The School of Business also offers the bachelor of applied science in management and the bachelor of applied science in hospitality and tourism management.
