Regional accreditation is the measurement the US Department of Education (DOE) uses to ensure that schools meet rigorous and up-to-date standards of education and professionalism. Marylhurst University carries regional accreditation from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.* Many regionally accredited educational institutions do not recognize credits or degrees earned at nationally accredited universities or colleges because of their far less rigorous standards.
You should feel confident in Marylhurst’s reputation because of their regional accreditation, but the university goes another step further. All of the business programs carry specialized accreditation from the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE)**, which is dedicated to enhancing the academic experience through outcomes assessment.
