The University of San Francisco Accreditation

Accreditation

Why is accreditation important? Regional accreditation means a university has undergone a thorough self-review facilitated by an independent accrediting body that verifies the institution meets rigorous academic standards. Accrediting bodies base their regional or national standards on U.S. Department of Education guidelines, ensuring that the institution they accredit offers quality education.

The prestigious Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International accredits the University of San Francisco’s School of Management, which offers the Online Master of Public Administration (MPA). To be awarded AACSB accreditation, a school must meet rigorous standards, as this distinction represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. For more information, contact the AACSB International.
