Organizational Management. In addition to NCU’s accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), the University’s School of Business and Technology Management programs are also accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), ensuring that Northcentral’s online degree programs meet the same high‐quality standards required of other premier colleges and universities nationwide.
