The URI College of Business Administration, the first accredited business school in Rhode Island, is recognized for its leadership in business education, research, and outreach. Located on the URI Quad in Ballentine Hall, the College of Business is the only institution in Rhode Island with accredited programs at the undergraduate, Master’s, and PhD levels.
The College of Business Administration has been accredited since 1972 by AACSB, The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. In addition, the Accounting Program has been separately accredited at both the undergraduate and graduate levels since 1994. AACSB accreditation is highly sought after by universities due to its high level of academic merit and accreditation has been achieved by fewer than 15% of the institutions teaching management education.
