OVERLAND PARK, KS, USA (January 22, 2018) — The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) www.acbsp.org Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree Board of Commissioners has awarded California Southern University in Costa Mesa, California, www.calsouthern.edu, accreditation of its business programs.
Established in 1988, 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 undergraduate and graduate business programs offered through the School of Business at Cal Southern 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 or not the business programs offer a rigorous educational experience and demonstrate continuous quality improvement.
“California Southern University has shown their 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 ACBSP Conference 2018 in Kansas City, Mo., on June 10. “This accreditation is evidence that Cal Southern is committed to providing the highest quality business education for their students.”
“The accreditation of CalSouthern’s business programs by the Accreditation Council of Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) is a very important step for the University and is just another indicator of the quality of the degree programs it offers,” says Dr. Gregory Herbert, Dean, School of Business. “ACBSP is a leading accreditor for business programs and the process to achieve this milestone was extremely rigorous and involved faculty, staff, alumni, and current Learners over a period of years. ACBSP accreditation signifies that the education received by our business Learners is of the highest quality and will provide significant benefits as they complete their programs of study and take their degrees out into the business world.”
