Alumni Spotlight

Joanna Faber Advice

Joanna Faber (Econ ’19)

“Think broadly! An economics degree is highly valuable in many fields, not just in the world of business. I have met lawyers, restaurant owners, teachers, and doctors who hold degrees in economics.” 

AACSB Accreditation

The Parker College of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), and has been since 1983. This is a distinction that is held by less than 5% of the world’s business schools. Maintaining accreditation requires an institution to maintain qualified faculty and an established program of continual improvement. This requires a great deal of work by the faculty and administration, but it sets our programs apart as some of the top programs in the world.
