WSU College of Business earns accreditation
The Winona State University College of Business has earned accreditation from The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International.
Less than 5 percent of business schools worldwide, or 607 institutions, have earned the accreditation.
The college underwent a meticulous internal and external review and evaluation process over four years, according to James Murphy, dean of the college.
"Our admission standards and core business curriculum have dynamically evolved to make Winona State a preferred source of business graduates," said Murphy.
The accreditation encompasses the undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree offered by the College of Business. The degree offers majors in accounting, business administration, human resources management, finance, management information systems and marketing.
The College of Business employs 45 full-time faculty. Approximately 15 percent, or 1,283, of Winona State’s 8,600 students are enrolled in the College of Business. WSU’s accreditation will be recognized April 28-30 at the 2011 AACSB International Conference and Annual Meeting in New York City.
