Why a Barry MBA?
The Andreas School of Business is accredited by AACSB
International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. This accreditation
means you will receive the best business education that is internationally recognized. Only about a
third of all business schools in the United States are accredited by AACSB International, and Barry
is the only Catholic Institution accredited Southeast of New Orleans.
In addition to our accreditation, our active role within various national and international economic development organizations keeps us in the forefront of business and ensures you receive a relevant, high-quality education.
