Idaho is home to more than a dozen colleges and universities that offer business programs. Just a few include Brigham Young University-Idaho, Boise State University, Idaho State University, and Northwest Nazarene University. Several of these schools offer nationally ranked, fully Online MBA Programs. The programs are also accredited by two of the world’s top accrediting agencies for business schools: the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). Let’s take a look.
