We Offer Programs Where You Are

We offer programs online and at our main campus in Harrogate, TN as well as our Knoxville site campus at Cedar Bluff.

We Offer Accredited Programs

There are two main types of accreditation: institutional and program-specific. Lincoln Memorial University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate, baccalaureate, master's, specialist and doctorate degrees. The LMU School of Business wanted to hold ourselves to a higher standard through program accreditation. The School of Business chose to focus on teaching excellence and seek accreditation from The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). ACBSP is one of two primary international business school accreditation bodies. We were proud when the Board of Commissioners of the Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree Commission of the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs met on November 17-18, 2011, and voted to grant initial accreditation to Lincoln Memorial University and its business programs, which includes our MBA Program.
