ACBSP Reaffirms Accreditation of Business Programs at Trinity
Tuesday, 19 January 2010
The Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) has recently awarded Trinity reaffirmation of accreditation of its business programs. The accreditation certifies that Trinity’s teaching and learning processes within the business program meet the rigorous educational standards established by the ACBSP.
Trinity has been accredited by the ACBSP since 1999, and was evaluated in October 2009 for reaccreditation of the traditional business program and accreditation for the adult studies program. To receive the accreditation the business program had to demonstrate that students are educated in all critical areas of business study, are able to solve multi-disciplinary problems, and can be effective decision makers.
“Earning ACBSP accreditation communicates to both students and employers that the Trinity business program has met rigorous quality standards that are modeled on the Baldrige National Quality Program,” said Dr. Lynn White, professor of accounting. “Graduates of ACBSP accredited programs generally find it easier to gain acceptance into graduate school and to qualify for professional certification.”
Steve Parscale, ACBSP Director of Accreditation, will present the Certificate of Reaffirmation of Accreditation to Trinity at the ACBSP Annual Conference on June 27, in Los Angeles, California. “Trinity Christian College has shown their commitment to teaching excellence and to the process of quality improvement by participating in the accreditation process,” said Parscale. “This accreditation is evidence that Trinity Christian College is committed to providing the highest quality business education for their students.”
