The John E. Simon School of Business introduced the new MS with a major in Software Development in the 2017-18 academic year. This Degree, as are all programs at Maryville University, is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). However, the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), our specialized accrediting organization, will not add any new majors to the list of accredited programs until the new program has been offered for two years, and its first students have graduated.
BUS-501, Survey of Business, will be required if the applicant’s GPA is below a 3.0 and/or if the applicant’s undergraduate degree was outside the area of business.
