You and the School of Business

You can be confident that our curricula are designed to offer academic quality and professional relevance. Not only are many of our business degree programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), but they also address needs within U.S. businesses. Our coursework helps develop skills important to job success, such as idea development, analytical thinking, planning and effective communication.

As a student, you’ll experience firsthand how to apply business principles to the working world from faculty members who average 20.5 years of business experience. In fact, more than 450 instructors have served as chief executive officers of their respective organizations. Additionally, more than 150 chief financial officers, nearly 100 chief operating officers and more than 1,500 company presidents are teaching our courses at any time throughout the year.

We also provide a unique benefit through our partnerships with national associations in manufacturing, retail, hospitality and energy to develop multiple educational options for their corporate members. Many nationally recognized corporations, such as AT&T and Hitachi, have formed corporate partnerships with us to educate their employees. Many of these partners post open jobs in the Phoenix Career Services™ portal for our students and alumni to consider.
