Palmetto College's Business Administration program is the only online business degree completion program in South Carolina to be fully accredited by AACSB International.
AACSB accreditation is the gold standard for business programs worldwide, and is held by fewer than 10 percent of all business schools around the world. Having an AACSB undergraduate business degree facilitates admission to an AACSB-accredited MBA program in the future.

Students taking a full-time course load can potentially complete this degree in 2 years.
