The College of Business at Jackson State University has been awarded NIBS international accreditation, following a site visit by a peer review panel earlier this month.

JSU was represented by Dr. Ramin C. Maysami, Dean of the College of Business, along with over 30 members of the school’s faculty, staff, and students.
In awarding accreditation, the panel made special note of the school’s of high degree of commitment to internationalization, and its innovative initiatives to expose students to experiences outside of the United States.
