Learn from the best of the best.

It’s one thing to say we have quality faculty. It’s another to prove it. Nearly all our MBA professors have earned a Ph.D. in their fields—and have earned the best student reviews.


The Doermer Difference

Step toward success with a quality experience.


The Doermer School of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), which is the highest level of accreditation that can be obtained.

AACSB accreditation represents the highest standard of achievement for business schools worldwide. Fewer than 6 percent of the world’s 13,000 business programs have earned this accreditation.

Schools with AACSB accreditation have the highest-quality faculty, relevant and challenging curricula, and they provide educational and career opportunities that are not found at other business schools. These schools also produce graduates that are highly skilled and more desirable to employers than other schools that are not accredited.

Purdue Fort Wayne offers the only business school with AACSB International accreditation in northeast Indiana.
