The College of Business holds special accreditation earned from the Association for the Advancement of 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.

About two thirds of the academic coursework in the PGA Golf Management Program is taken in the College of Business with the remainder in areas outside business, thus providing students with broad educational experiences. Most of the academic program is identical to the program pursued by all Business majors. More specific information about the academic curriculum requirements can be found in the College of Business undergraduate curriculum.

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.
