Assiniboine awarded accreditation of its business programs


The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) Associate Degree Board of Commissioners has awarded Assiniboine Community College accreditation of its business programs.

ACBSP accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within the business degrees and programs offered through Assiniboine Community College meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP.

Commitment to program quality and external recognition is an important part of the college’s Academic Plan.

“This is a significant development for our business programs. This accreditation validates what we know to be true —we offer quality training that prepares graduates for excellence in business-related careers,” said Geoff Milne, Chair of Business at Assiniboine. “We value and trust the standards set forth by ACBSP, so we are proud to tell our students and the college community that our programs meet those standards.”

With more than 30 years of promoting excellence in global business program accreditation, ACBSP was the first organization offering specialized business accreditation for all degree levels, from associate to baccalaureate to doctoral degree programs.

“Assiniboine Community College has shown its 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. “This accreditation is evidence that Assiniboine Community College is committed to providing the highest quality business education for their students.”

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.
