We all know the ole discussion between Regional Accreditation and National Accreditation. However, how important is programmatic accreditation to you? Does a programs programmatic accreditation, or lack thereof, make a difference to you when selecting and/or recommending a program? Prior to business school, I had never really paid attention to programmatic accreditation and then opted to pursue a MBA at an AACSB Accredited business school. Now, as I close in on finishing my 2nd masters, I am looking into PhD/DBA programs…and I’m to the point that I do not care if it is AACSB or ACBSP. Have others reached a point in their academic journey that they just want a good education regardless of the programmatic accreditor?
