LIVONIA, MICH.— The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) http://www.acbsp.org/ Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree Board of Commissioners has awarded Madonna University 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 Madonna’s School of Business 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.

“Staff and faculty of Madonna University’s School of Business have 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 2017 in Anaheim, California, June 26. “This accreditation is evidence that Madonna University is committed to providing the highest quality business education for its students.”

“I am pleased to announce that Madonna University’s School of Business has achieved ACBSP Accreditation,” said Deborah Dunn, Ed.D., dean of the School of Business. “This accomplishment was achieved through strong teamwork and a commitment to providing quality instruction and student services at all levels of the University. We are very grateful to the ACBSP Steering Committee, and to our dedicated faculty and staff, in the School of Business and throughout Madonna. This achievement demonstrates our passion to excel in business education, by placing student learning and outcomes at the center of all that we do.”
