Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP)
Founded in 1988, the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) is a global business education accrediting body and the only organization to offer accreditation at all levels of business degree programs from associate to doctoral. ACBSP ignites a standard of excellence with an accreditation process based on the Baldrige Education Criteria for Performance Excellence. ACBSP assesses whether or not business programs offer a rigorous educational experience and commitment to continuous quality improvement. ACBSP was recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) in 2001 and again in 2011. In 2019, ACBSP became the first business accreditor to offer certificate accreditation, providing flexibility for business schools and programs to offer diversified training in a matter of months rather than years, preparing students to enter the workplace quickly. ACBSP’s mission is to promote continuous improvement and recognize teaching excellence in the accreditation of business education programs throughout the world.
