Why does AACSB accreditation matter?
The Whitworth University School of Business is an accredited member of AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

"Less than 5 percent of all schools offering degree programs in business at the bachelor level or higher worldwide hold AACSB accreditation."
Whitworth's B.A. in Management & Accounting program is offered in a cohort format. Once you begin either the management or accounting major sequence, you'll be part of a group of approximately 15 other students that takes each course, one at a time, and completes the major together. Because you'll stay with the same group of students throughout each program, you'll have the chance to develop a stronger sense of community and collaborative learning while instructors build upon a knowledge base that increases with each successive course.
