Representatives of business schools from 25 college and universities in five states were on the East Central University campus this week for the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs Region 6 Conference at the Chickasaw Business and Conference Center.
Approximately 250 people were in attendance, including the business school representatives (adults and college students), high school students, ECU faculty and various volunteers. Region 6 consists of business schools and programs from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico and Texas.
Two conferences were actually going on at the same time, one for academic administrators and one for students.
“It’s an honor to work with the executive leadership team of ACBSP and Region 6 to host an amazing conference,” said Wendell Godwin, Region 6 president and dean of ECU’s Harland C. Stonecipher School of Business. “This is the first time that our region has conducted a joint conference to include students.”
