Celebrating 32 years of excellence in global business program accreditation, ACBSP is the only organization offering specialized business accreditation for all degree levels, from associate to baccalaureate to doctoral degree programs. ACBSP accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within the business degrees and programs offered through the School of Business and Computer Science at Caldwell University meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP.

Based on the Baldridge Education Criteria for Performance Excellence, ACBSP accreditation evaluates aspects of leadership, strategic planning, relationships with stakeholders, quality of academic programs, faculty credentials, and educational support to determine whether the business programs offer a rigorous educational experience and demonstrate continuous quality improvement.

“Caldwell University has shown a commitment to teaching excellence and to the process of quality improvement by participating in the accreditation process,” said ACBSP Chief Accreditation Officer Dr. Steve Parscale, who will present the Certificate of Accreditation at the ACBSP Annual International Conference 2020 in Chicago, Illinois, on June 28. “This accreditation is evidence that Caldwell University is committed to providing the highest quality business education for their students.”

Virginia Rich, associate dean of the School of Business and Computer Science, stated: “This is great news for the School of Business and Computer Science. Reaccreditation is a comprehensive workout and requires the input and expertise of our faculty and administration.”  The School was originally accredited in 2008. Rich says they have pursued excellence in all their academic programs and have used the ACBSP Standards and process to grow and develop new programs. “Our student population has grown overall and our new programs in healthcare administration, sport management, and esports management now are under the umbrella of accreditation and subject to the ACBSP’s rigorous standards. We look forward to our continued partnership with ACBSP to help us as we continue to grow both undergraduate and graduate programs.”
