Flowery Branch swim coach Valerie Krause talks about the difficulty of working with a bigger roster of swimmers.

Piedmont College’s Walker School of Business Administration has received national accreditation from the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs after a two-year review.

The accreditation applies to the undergraduate and graduate business programs at both Piedmont’s Demorest and Athens campuses.

The Kansas-based association was founded in 1988.

Bill Piper, dean of the business school, said the accreditation for Piedmont involved an improvement of the college’s business degree programs during the review process.

The accreditation also commits the school to "continuous improvement," he said.

"Current undergraduate and (master of business administration) students at Piedmont are excited that their degrees will be recognized as having come from a nationally accredited school of business," Piper said.
