Kelce College of Business faculty, staff, and students at Pittsburg State University celebrate the recent accreditation by the AACSB — the premier accreditation body in business higher education. The honor comes on the 20th anniversary of the KCOB earning its first accreditation. The process, which is done every five years on a continuous cycle, dives into the curriculum, faculty credentials, operations, efficiency, and best practices of the college. KCOB has added a new online Master of Business Administration degree, targeted toward mid-career professionals living off campus,who don’t have the opportunity to attend school in Pittsburg.
The business school’s faculty and staff also produce a quarterly report, the Pittsburg Micropolitan Economic Report. It is used by city and business leaders for economic development and tourism planning.
