ACBSP Accreditation Overview

ACBSP Accreditation Overview

ACBSP's accreditation process follows the Baldrige model. The accreditation focuses on recognizing teaching excellence, determining student learning outcomes, and a continuous improvement model. ACBSP’s student-centered teaching and learning approach, which is measured and analyzed for quality, ensures that students gain the right skills from their educational investment. Institutions with programs accredited by ACBSP are committed to continuous improvement that ensures their business program will give students the skills employers want.

Through a process of self-study, on-site visitation, and assessment, business units can demonstrate their commitment to serving students, other institutions, and industry.


A Demonstration of Quality

This distinctive model of excellence reflects validated leading-edge management practices, ensuring the quality of your business programs.


Global Recognition

ACBSP accreditation provides global recognition of your business programs. It sets you apart from your competition. It is accreditation with global distinction.


Better articulation agreements

ACBSP encourages and supports articulation agreements between its associate and baccalaureate/graduate degree member campuses.


Increased Student Value

ACBSP accreditation legitimizes our program and department. We get recognition from our administrators and others around the college. In fact, we have faculty members outside of the department asking about our assessment methods for their own programs.”
