At South University, we strive for excellence. Our faculty and staff never stop searching for ways to improve our programs or the overall experience for our students, and those around us are taking notice of our hard work and commitment to providing the education our students deserve.

ACBSP logoToday, we’re excited to announce that South University received accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP)* for the following programs available online:

Bachelor of Business Administration
Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Management

The ACBSP accreditation recognizes our rigorous academic standards, top-notch faculty and our focus on student outcomes. The accreditation also signals to current and prospective students that our curriculum is relevant and practical in today’s world and that our graduates will be prepared to make an impact in the field of business.

To earn this accreditation, South University was required to demonstrate that we meet specific standards related to strategic planning, leadership, stakeholder focus, and measurement of student learning. According to ACBSP Director of Accreditation Steve Parscale, “This accreditation is evidence that South University is committed to providing the highest quality business education for their students.”

Established in 1988, ACBSP is the only organization offering specialized business accreditation for all degree levels, from associate to baccalaureate to doctoral degree programs. Thus, ACBSP accreditation brings both increased prestige and visibility to South University’s business programs and the university as a whole. Furthermore, it gives our alumni as well as our current and future students access to a valuable global network of mentors, employers and professional peers.
