TU’s School Of Business Receives Both U.S. & European Accreditation!

Our Mission

The Mission of the Tiffin University School of Business is to prepare our students for professional, managerial, and leadership positions in both the public sector and private sector profit and not-for-profit organizations.

Emphasis is placed on development of the communication, technical, analytical, and critical thinking skills needed by successful organizations competing in a global environment. 

Above all else, we instill in students a lifelong and irrepressible desire to continue to learn and grow in wisdom, knowledge, and ethical practices anchored by integrity.

As part of our mission, our faculty worked to develop what we believe to be our Guiding Principles. Inspired by President and CEO of Ohio Mutual Insurance Group, James Kennedy, I asked our faculty to consider what our guiding principles are in order to differentiate ourselves as a School of Business, as James did with his organization and our outcome is illustrated here. We live by these principles and are very proud to be part of the faculty at Tiffin University.

A Message From Your Dean:

Welcome to the School of Business at TU!

For Schools of Business, accreditation is the most impressive measurement of a distinctive and innovative curriculum and Tiffin University’s School of Business holds this status with two of the most reputable organizations. Not only is TU’s School of Business accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Program (ACBSP), we also hold accreditation through the European Council for Business Education (ECBE) and are only one of two schools in the United States to hold this distinctive business school accreditation. This is in addition to the fact that all Tiffin University academic programs are authorized by the Ohio Board of Regents and accredited by the North Central Association of College and Schools (NCA), which is one of the six regional accreditation bodies recognized by essentially all of the major public and private colleges and universities in America.

Besides our business programs offered on campus and around the state of Ohio, we also have campuses in several international locations currently including Bucharest, Romania; and Taipei, Taiwan. We're proud that our business program is truly global.

The benefit to all of our students as a result is an exceptional group of faculty who are actively presenting and researching in their respective fields, and in many cases, teaching globally, and each bring that knowledge back into the classroom. Further, our students experience real world business practice by serving as an intern within their respective disciplines while at TU and can even do so overseas. Finally, all our students benefit from a 100-plus year tradition of graduating competent, ethical professionals with the opportunity to attain real success in positions they desire; an essential factor, given today’s constantly changing, globally competitive marketplace.

So, if you are looking for a program that will prepare you for the complex, global environment of today’s competitive marketplace, come see us. We are ready to help you make this happen. We look forward to meeting you and wish you the best in your educational endeavors!
