Since its inception in 1916, the AACSB has become an internationally-known, long-standing accreditation program that has challenged business colleges around the globe to continually innovate and improve the education of their students. It is widely recognized as the most respected accreditation that business schools can earn.

A Best Business School

The Princeton Review has ranked UNI Business as “A Best Business School” for over a decade because of our commitment to academics, student life, career and placement, specifically in our MBA program. What makes this award special is that the rankings are voted on by real students. According to the Princeton Review, they survey students periodically and ask them to provide information such as, "About Yourself," "Your School's Academics/Administration," "Students" and "Life at Your School." 

With a faculty/student ratio of 18 to 1, UNIBusiness’ professors offer a hands-on, engaging experience that challenges all students, creating an education that is hard to match.
