Accredited/Reaccredited

ACEJMC currently has 113 fully accredited programs. The listing of a unit as accredited or re-accredited indicates that the unit received full accreditation/reaccreditation by ACEJMC. The date of the unit’s most recent review is provided, as well as the distinction of accredited or reaccredited.  Accredited denotes an initial review; reaccredited is self-evident. [In some cases, not all programs within the unit were reviewed; in these instances, the areas reviewed are shown in brackets.]
In addition, the listing provides each accredited unit’s most recent site team review report (2012-13 and thereafter) and the accredited unit’s current student data information (retention and graduation data)

ACEJMC does not rate or rank programs. Some units offer degrees in addition to those listed here. ACEJMC does not accredit programs leading to the Ph.D.

Accreditation evaluations normally are made by ACEJMC at six-year intervals. An asterisk (*) beside a school’s listing indicates that the school has received a one-year delay of its accreditation visit.

Links to websites and email are provided where available for the convenience of users only. ACEJMC takes no responsibility for the accuracy or maintenance of websites belonging to other entities. Please notify Cindy Reinardy if you encounter outdated or inoperable links.
