Montana's Only Accredited Accountancy Program
The accounting programs at the University of Montana are accredited by AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International). Only 173 institutions worldwide hold this "gold standard" accreditation, and no other accounting program in the state holds this distinction. In fact, only 10 schools in all of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana hold separate AACSB accounting accreditation. We are very proud of this distinction and strive to continually improve our programs in the spirit of AACSB accreditation.
