Business programs receive ACBSP accreditation

MILLIGAN, Tenn. (Nov. 25, 2020) — Milligan University’s business programs in the William B. Greene, Jr. School of Business and Technology have received accreditation from the Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree Board of Commissioners for the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).

“One of Milligan’s first academic programs, dating back over 150 years, was business administration, and it is gratifying to know that our business programs continue to be relevant to the marketplace and of high quality,” said Milligan President Dr. Bill Greer. “I offer my congratulations to the business program faculty for achieving the milestone of ACBSP accreditation.”

ACBSP accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within Milligan’s William B. Greene, Jr. School of Business and Technology meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP.

“Milligan University has shown its commitment to teaching excellence and to the process of quality improvement by participating in the accreditation process,” said ACBSP Chief Accreditation Officer Dr. Steve Parscale. “This accreditation is evidence that Milligan is committed to providing the highest quality business education for their students.”

Celebrating 32 years of excellence in global business program accreditation, ACBSP was the first organization to offer specialized business accreditation for all degree levels, from associate to baccalaureate to doctoral degree programs, and the first to offer certificate accreditation.

Based on the Baldridge Education Criteria for Performance Excellence, ACBSP accreditation evaluates aspects of leadership, strategic planning, relationships with stakeholders, quality of academic programs, faculty credentials and educational support to determine whether or not business programs offer a rigorous educational experience and demonstrate continuous quality improvement.
