MC School of Business Receives High Marks from Accreditation Council
May 16, 2012
Serving 890 students at its high-tech Self Hall headquarters, the Mississippi College School of Business is a vibrant part of the Christian university in Clinton.
A very positive sign showing the strength of the MC School of Business, the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs recently reaffirmed its accreditation.
The official news will be announced at the council’s June 15-18 conference in Baltimore, Maryland. Founded in 1988 and located in Overland, Kansas, the accreditation council supports, celebrates and rewards teaching excellence in business education worldwide.
There are about 2,400 U.S. institutions of higher learning that offer business administration, finance, management and marketing. Accreditation is a sign that colleges are offering quality business programs that embrace a healthy balance between teaching and research. The council also strongly encourages faculty to stay involved with the business world to enhance classroom instruction.
MC School of Business Dean Marcelo Eduardo is delighted with the council’s decision and thanked the people on the Clinton campus for working diligently to make it happen.
“I want to thank the School of Business faculty and staff for all of their hard work on the re-accreditation,” Eduardo said. “It is a great accomplishment for the School of Business and Mississippi College.”
The MC School of Business enrolls 660 undergraduates and 230 graduate students.
