The accreditation process of each of these organizations is rigorous and ongoing.  Accreditation helps insure that our programs maintain high standards.  This, in turn, guarantees that our courses will be accepted by other educational institutions for transfer credit, and that our students receive the best education possible.    

In addition to accreditation, Business Studies programs have received approval from professional organizations to offer courses leading to professional licensure.

Our Real Estate Program is approved by the Texas Real Estate Commission to offer courses required for the Agent License and the Broker License.

Our Professional Accounting Program is approved by the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy to offer all of the Accounting and Business coursework required to sit for the CPA exam.
