ACU's College of Business Administration is not your typical business school. In fact, we are one of only ten private universities in Texas that is AACSB accredited, the highest standard for business schools in the world. Students at ACU get the highest quality education in a Christian environment that encourages integrating faith and leadership with business and technology. COBA houses the Department of Accounting and Finance and the Department of Management Sciences, as well as the School of Information Technology and Computing.

The Griggs Center for Entrepreneurship and Philanthropy is a signature program of the College of Business Administration.
