Accreditation is a process for voluntary, non-governmental review of educational institutions and programs. When choosing a business school, it is very important to consider its accreditation. Accreditation may affect your desirability in graduate programs, ability to transfer credits, the reputation of your degree, and your ability to compete in the job market.
