Delaware Valley University Awarded Accreditation of its Business Programs
Jan 07, 2019
The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) Degree Board of Commissioners has awarded Delaware Valley University accreditation of its business programs.
ACBSP accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within the business programs offered through the University’s School of Business and Humanities and School of Graduate and Professional Studies meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP. Celebrating 30 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.
The University offers an MBA program and a bachelor’s in business administration. The undergraduate program provides the flexibility for students to specialize in accounting, management, marketing, or sports management; to minor in another academic area, or to complete an MBA with one additional year of study. MBA students have the opportunity to specialize in accounting, food and agribusiness, general business, or supply chain management.
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.
“Delaware Valley 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 ACBSP Conference 2019 in Houston, Texas, on June 23. “This accreditation is evidence that Delaware Valley University is committed to providing the highest quality business education for students.”
“Delaware Valley University’s business degree programs provide students with the knowledge and skills to advance their careers,” said Co-Chair of the Department of Business and Information Management Christine Seel. “This accreditation affirms the quality of our programs and will help us to continue to enhance the academic experience for our undergraduate business students as well as our MBA students. This accreditation will help the University continue to attract and retain high-achieving business students who will be assets to employers in the region.”
ACBSP is a leading specialized accreditation body for business education. ACBSP’s mission is to promote continuous improvement and recognize teaching excellence in the accreditation of business education programs throughout the world. Recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) in 2001 and again in 2011, ACBSP was the first to offer specialized business accreditation at all degree levels. ACBSP currently accredits business programs at nearly 1,200 campuses in 60 countries. Learn more at acbsp.org.
