Truman’s School of Business and accounting program are accredited by AACSB International, The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, the gold standard of business school accreditation worldwide.
With the flexibility of our accounting program, you can explore courses in our Business Administration program with areas of concentration in Finance, International Business, Management, and Marketing.
