LVC Department of Business and Economics Awarded ACBSP Accreditation
08.08.11 |
Lebanon Valley College’s Department of Business and Economics was awarded accreditation initial by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) at their annual conference in Indianapolis earlier this summer. LVC was one of only 17 institutions to receive the distinction this year.

Douglas G. Viehland, executive director of the ACBSP, spoke of the accomplishment of the member institutions: “These institutions have shown their commitment to teaching excellence by their participation in the accreditation process and their achievement of accreditation. ACBSP is proud to assist these schools and programs in their commitment to quality business programs. We recognize their educational practices that contribute to the continuous improvement of business education.”

Dr. David Rudd, chair of business and economics and professor of business administration at LVC, commented on the last five years of the department’s accreditation effort. “Through two-self-studies, and a full review by the ACBSP Commission on Undergraduate Accreditation, our programs held up to the standards of excellence for colleges that place a priority on excellence in teaching.

For institutions that achieve accreditation for their business schools and programs, this attainment certifies that the teaching and learning processes within that institution meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP. The ratification of accreditation by ACBSP covers a 10-year period at which time an institution must reaffirm its quality by preparing a self-study and having another site visit. During the accreditation period, business programs are required to maintain the high quality standards of ACBSP.

ACBSP’s mission is to establish, promote, and recognize educational practices that contribute to the continuous quality improvement of business education programs, teaching of business courses, and student learning outcomes in colleges and universities throughout the United States and abroad. ACBSP was established in 1988 and is the only business accrediting organization for both two-year and four-year institutions. ACBSP has 1,051 member campuses representing 531 different institutions including 157 member campuses from outside the United States.
