Business Program Reaccredited by ACBSP

February 07, 2018

The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) reaffirmed accreditation of the business program at Walla Walla University (WWU) in December 2017.

The ACBSP has more than 1,100 member institutions in more than 50 countries and is a leading accreditor in mission-based standards of teaching excellence. The ACBSP is the only organization offering business accreditation for all degree levels, including associate, baccalaureate, master and doctoral programs.

“We are pleased to have our business administration degrees reaccredited for the maximum period of 10 years,” says Bruce Toews, WWU School of Business interim dean. “A lot of work went into the self-study, which was nearly 1,000 pages long. Last October, we hosted three evaluators who spent several days reviewing our program. Because of this accreditation, students can have confidence that our program meets rigorous quality standards and that our degrees are widely recognized.”

WWU’s business program was initially accredited by ACBSP in 1997, when it became the first program in Seventh-day Adventist higher education to earn business accreditation.
