John Brown University's mission is to provide Christ-centered education that prepares people to honor God and serve others by developing their intellectual, spiritual and professional lives. That mission extends to our graduate programs, which were designed to educate the whole person — “head, heart, hand.” Our goal is to produce graduates who not only lead in their professions, but also make the world a better place.

With its well-respected degree programs and successful alumni, it's no wonder enrollment for JBU’s Graduate School has increased by 79% in the past decade. Our international and experiential learning opportunities will broaden your mind and expand your knowledge of the world and your career. And our commitment to teaching means that every professor you have in the Graduate School at JBU will be focused on one goal: making your educational journey the best experience possible.


JBU is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (, 312-263-0456) and the Graduate School is a member of the Conference of Southern Graduate Schools. In addition, all business programs are accredited or are candidates for accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). The education preparation programs are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).  On July 1, 2013 NCATE consolidated with the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) and formed the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) as the new accrediting body for educator preparation, (202) 223-0077.
