Smartly's Degrees and Certifications
Students of our MBA and Executive MBA degree programs earn their diplomas formally from Smartly Institute. Regulated by the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) of Washington, DC, Smartly Institute is a licensed, degree-granting institution of higher education. Graduating students obtain the internationally recognized MBA and Executive MBA academic credentials.
In terms of accreditation, we are not yet formally recognized by an accrediting organization governed by the U.S. Department of Education. Accreditation is of course not guaranteed, and the process likely takes several years to complete. In the meantime, we continue to build high-caliber classes with thousands of students to date, joining us as pioneers in mobile-first, technology-driven higher education.
Our non-degree certificate programs are also regulated by the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) of Washington, D.C. Students earn their certification from Smartly's School of Professional Education.
