Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs Changes Name To Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs

August 20, 2010, Overland Park, KS — ACBSP, a leading specialized accreditation association for business education has changed its name to better reflect the global accreditation it offers. 

After recommendations by the Board of Directors and the Bylaws Committee, the membership voted to adopt the new name during the Annual Business Meeting, held during the June 2010 ACBSP Annual Conference in Los Angeles. A new logo has also been developed to coincide with the name change.

"It was important for us to keep the acronym ACBSP, since people involved in business higher education have come to recognize that,” said Executive Director Douglas Viehland. "We believe the new name better reflects the unique accreditation we offer to business schools and programs around the world.”

The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) has 828 member campuses, 134 of which are located outside of the United States. Of those member campuses, 529 have achieved accreditation and more than 220 are in candidacy for accreditation. Individual membership now exceeds 8,000. Visit to learn more.
