The power and purpose of accreditation

CarringtonCrisp has been delighted to work with ACBSP and its members to examine the value of accreditation.  Schools often ask what is the purpose of accreditation and quickly follow that up with a second question - what will accreditation do for our programs once they are accredited?

An online survey was conducted with ACBSP members with responses from 440 schools around the world.  Most importantly, 85% definitely or mostly agreed that "I would recommend ACBSP accreditation to a non-accredited college/university", while 87% definitely or mostly agree that "Our business programs are better having been through the accreditation process".  The findings from the study were introduced during a luncheon at the 2017 ACBSP Annual Conference and the slides from that presentation can be downloaded here.
