Accreditation of Business Programs at Millikin University reaffirmed by ACBSP

The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree Board of Commissioners has reaffirmed accreditation of the business programs at Millikin University.

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 business programs offered through the Tabor School of Business at Millikin University meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP.

Millikin University was first accredited by ACBSP in 2005. Millikin University is required to go through the reaffirmation process every 10 years to maintain ACBSP accreditation.

"Millikin 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 Reaffirmation of Accreditation at the 2015 ACBSP Conference in Philadelphia, Pa., on June 14.

"This reaffirmation of accreditation is evidence that Millikin University is committed to providing the highest quality business education for their students for the next 10 years, just as they have done for the last 10 years," said Parscale.

Dr. Susan Kruml, dean of the Tabor School of Business at Millikin University noted, "I continue to be impressed by the high quality faculty and staff at the Tabor School of Business. Working as a dedicated team, the experiences they create for undergraduate and graduate students are unmatched by any I've seen. The Tabor School of Business delivers cutting-edge competency-based programs and ACBSP affirms this."
