Cleveland State Community College’s Business Department was recently awarded accreditation for its business program by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).

CSCC was one of 27 of the association’s member institutions awarded accreditation at the 2013 ACBSP Annual Conference in Salt Lake City. This represents the 23rd annual presentation to institutions that have achieved accreditation since ACBSP was founded 25 years ago.

Douglas G. Viehland, executive director of 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. Denise King, vice president for academic affairs, said, "Cleveland State business programs provide challenging curriculum in a supportive environment for future mangers, supervisors and employees of a working world that changes rapidly. ACBSP accreditation recognizes the rigorous attention we pay to the ongoing quality of business education.

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.

Sherra Witt, dean of business and technology, said, "This accreditation confirms the quality of our programs and education for students in pursuit of a career in the current business world.”
