Opportunity to Learn More About Our Accreditation!

Globe University/Minnesota School of Business is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS).

On February 3, students, faculty, administrators and future employers are invited to participate in a public forum with the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) to discuss how we can work together to improve career education success. This collaborative exchange will be led by members of ACICS’ leadership team, who will highlight new requirements for accreditation and conclude with a question and answer portion for students, faculty, and other participants.

The forum will be divided into two sessions:

Session 1: Standards of Student Achievement

The discussion will focus on:

  • New standards of student achievement including a focus on the retention, placement, and licensure pass rates that are required for ACICS’ approval of career education programs.
  • How ACICS will evaluate student achievement in each program and review faculty plans to ensure all students graduate with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the workplace.
 

Session 2: New Homework Requirements

The discussion will focus on:

  • New requirements for student homework with every lecture class, which are necessary for schools to award federal financial aid for credit hour courses.
  • How student homework assignments will be reviewed by ACICS evaluators, and what administrators, faculty and students can do to meet this new requirement.
