As a PGA Accredited University, the UCCS PGA Golf Management Program works directly with the PGA of America to provide the very best in education and training. Only 20 universities worldwide have earned this important distinction, and only eight have earned accreditation by both the PGA of America and the AACSB (see below).
As a graduate of the PGA Golf Management Program at UCCS, once you secure a job in the golf industry, you will be eligible for membership into the PGA of America as a PGA Golf Professional. Membership into this exclusive community of PGA Golf Professionals will provide you with the tools and support as well as the prestige for a successful and rewarding career in the golf industry.
The College of Business holds special accreditation earned from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. The AACSB is the most prestigious accrediting body for management education in the world and has been in existence since the early twentieth century. This accreditation is granted to only approximately 30 percent of all undergraduate business programs in the United States. It is based on such things as our academic standards, the qualifications of our faculty, the characteristics of our students, our curriculum, and our quality control processes. This accreditation assures students at UCCS that they have access to one of the best undergraduate business programs in the country.
Unlike other business students, PGA Golf Management students take specialized academic and professional courses that develop their expertise in the areas essential to securing a successful career in the golf industry.
