The Bachelor of Accounting, Bachelor of Business Administration and Master of Business Administration degrees offered by the Cameron University School of Business have been awarded re-accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). Accreditation is granted for 10 years. During the intervening years, a quality assurance report is required to be filed every two years. Cameron’s programs have been accredited since 2001.
“This re-accreditation by ACBSP reinforces Cameron’s commitment to continuous improvement, innovation, and scholarship,” says Dr. John Camey, Dean of the School of Business. “We will continue to focus on student learning in order to ensure that graduates of Cameron’s School of Business receive a top quality education that will prepare them to take their place in the business community.”
As part of the reaffirmation of accreditation, the School of Business prepared a self-study which demonstrates and records that it remains in compliance with ACBSP accreditation standards as outlined in the organization’s “Standards and Criteria for Demonstrating Excellence in Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree Schools and Programs” document. Following submission of the self-study, the School of Business hosted an evaluation team site visit. The evaluation team then completed its report to ACBSP’s Board of Commissioners, which subsequently re-affirmed Cameron’s accreditation.
Accreditation standards include the areas of leadership, strategic planning, student and stakeholder focus, measurement and analysis of student learning and performance, faculty and staff focus, faculty deployment, and educational and business process management.
The mission of ACBSP is to promote continuous improvement and recognize excellence in the accreditation of business education programs around the world. Founded in 1988 and recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, ACBSP was the first organization to offer specialized business accreditation at all degree levels.
