UTICA – Utica College has been awarded an accreditation of its business programs, and it’s a certification that the college has been working on for the last three years.
Utica College officials say this certifies that the teaching and learning processes at UC meet the education standards of the Accreditation Council, which reviews the quality and integrity, leadership and faculty credentials of business degree programs, among other items.
“We know that business is changing today, really rapidly. If it's not our relationship with our global trade partners it's the impact of technology,” said Candace Grant, associate dean of business programs at Utica College. “We need to be up-to-date, we need to have the processes in place to ensure that we are being contemporary and what we deliver. For students, it's that they know that we are always focused on what's happening in the marketplace and bringing the education up-to-date."
The accreditation applies to both the undergraduate and graduate programs.
