  Conditional Accreditation granted four four years with improvement opportunities in the following standards and criteria: Condition on Criterion 5.3; Notes on Criteria 4.2, 4.4 and 5.8.Basis for final decision: Performance expectations established by the programs are being met. The business programs meet the overall requirements of five of the six ACBSP standards. The business programs meet the basic requirements of one of the six standards. Condition on Criterion 5.3: The business unit has not deployed faculty with sufficient academic credentials to ensure appropriate emphasis in both business theory and practice to meet program objectives. The business unit has an opportunity to deploy a detailed human resources faculty hiring/development plan with a timeline for meeting the standard. Note on Criterion 4.2: The business programs have an opportunity to report a minimum of three successive sets of periodic assessment results to identify trends across a wider range of assessments. Some internal, formative assessment results do not yet have the required three data points. The collection, review, comparison against benchmarks, and implementation of planned improvements, based on analysis of assessment measures, is expected to lead to a fully deployed and implemented learning outcomes assessment program. Note on Criterion 4.4: The business unit has an opportunity to track assessments and meeting of learning outcomes using three to five data points across the program.This will enable identification of trends so action plans can be developed that can lead to improvements in the learning outcome assessments plan. Note on Criterion 5.8: Sufficient scholarship is a necessary component of the depth of knowledge of faculty and part adequate faculty preparation to teach students in the business program. The business unit has an opportunity to demonstrate greater faculty preparation through a balance of scholarly and professional activity. While the level of professional activity appears adequate, greater scholarly activity can improve faculty preparation to teach in the program.
