ACBSP Accreditation

SOBE accreditation logoThe Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) has awarded Lynchburg College initial accreditation of its business school by the ACBSP Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree Board of Commissioners.

Dr. Joe Turek, dean of the School of Business and Economics, was presented with the certificate of accreditation during the ACBSP Annual Conference in San Antonio, Texas, on June 28, 2009.

For institutions that achieve accreditation for their business schools and programs, this attainment certifies that the teaching and learning processes within the institution meet the rigorous educational standards established by the ACBSP.

The ratification of accreditation by ACBSP covers a ten-year period during which time Lynchburg College must continually reaffirm its quality through quality assurance reports.

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 associate and baccalaureate/graduate degree institutions. ACBSP has more than 587 member institutions and is located at 7007 College Blvd., Suite 420, Overland Park, Kansas, 66211.
