SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) announced that member institutions were awarded accreditation for their business school or programs at the 2013 ACBSP Annual Conference in Salt Lake City June 23. This represents the 23rd annual presentation to institutions that have achieved accreditation since ACBSP was founded 25 years ago.
Douglas G. Viehland, Executive Director of ACBSP, spoke of the accomplishment of the member institutions: “These institutions have shown their commitment to teaching excellence by their participation in the accreditation process and their achievement of accreditation. ACBSP is proud to assist these schools and programs in their commitment to quality business programs. We recognize their educational practices that contribute to the continuous improvement of business education.”
The University of Northwestern Ohio was among the first associate degree institutions to be granted accreditation for its two-year programs when ACBSP was founded 25 years ago.
Since 1987, University of Northwestern Ohio has maintained accreditation for all its programs through the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. With the additional ACBSP accreditation of its four-year baccalaureate degrees and a graduate degree (Master of Business Administration), granted at the recent annual conference, UNOH continues to provide one of the best business educational programs in the area.
For institutions that achieve accreditation for their business schools and programs, this attainment certifies that the teaching and learning processes within that institution meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP. The ratification of accreditation by ACBSP covers a 10-year period at which time an institution must reaffirm its quality by preparing a self-study and having another site visit. During the accreditation period, business programs are required to maintain the high quality standards of ACBSP.
