School of Business & Professional Studies Accreditation
Several undergraduate programs offered by Holy Family University's School of Business & Professional Studies are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). ACBSP accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within the business programs meet rigorous educational standards. Receiving accreditation for the business programs shows that HFU is committed to providing the highest quality business education for our students.
The programs currently accredited by ACBSP are :
- Management Marketing,
- and Sport Marketing Management.
The Business Analytics and Computer Information Systems programs were put forward to ACBSP for accreditation in June 2022.

The Bachelor of Science in Fire Science and Public Safety Program is not accredited by ACBSP due to the nature of the program. Please review the FSPS program pages and the IFSAC website for more information about this program.
The graduate level programs offered by the School of Business and Professional Studies (MBA, MS in Organizational Leadership, and MS in Accountancy) are accredited by the Middle States Commission of Higher Education (MSCHE).
Holy family University has made the intentional decision to not accredit the graduate programs through ACBSP to allow for greater accessibility to students who wish to pursue a master’s degree in business but do not have an undergraduate degree in the discipline.
