“This news confirms our commitment to offer a quality education at an affordable price,” said Liz Wilson, Ph.D., School of Business Administration dean. “Our AACSB accreditation puts us in the top five percent of all business schools nationally in terms of quality, so our low cost makes us an incredible value to students. There is high demand for students who graduate with a degree in Human Resource Management, and about 75 percent of our majors have jobs in the field before graduation.  We are thankful to the faculty and administrators who support all of our business programs and help us turn out job-ready graduates.”

The GSW School of Business offers a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting, Human Resource Management, Management and Marketing.
