School of Business: Verified Excellence
Belhaven’s business school is accredited by the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE). Why is this important?
Knowing the School of Business is accredited by the IACBE tells you that Belhaven voluntarily holds itself to a set of quality standards and is willing to allow outside business experts come to campus and verify Belhaven is doing what we say we are doing. Belhaven’s commitment to the accreditation process benefits you because it ensures you will be provided a quality education.
Leadership Certificate: What You Need to Know
To enter this program, you must have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college. A 2.5 cumulative GPA from undergraduate work is required for admission. You may also be admitted by showing nine hours of graduate work with a “B” or better in each course.
Up to six hours of accredited graduate work may be transferred if a “B” or better is earned in each course.
If you don’t meet the admission requirements, you may be conditionally admitted. For consideration, submit to the School of Business an essay outlining your goals and two letters of recommendation.
If you’re conditionally admitted, you must earn a 3.0 GPA in the first six semester hours of graduate work to continue in the program.
Applying to Belhaven’s online programs is quick and easy. We’ll need a couple supporting documents — things like transcripts from any other school you’ve attended. When you have gathered those, just complete our online application form.
