ACBSP Accreditation

Ashland University’s College of Business & Economics program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), providing strong evidence of the quality of our program and of our commitment to a student-centered teaching and learning approach. ACBSP accreditation standards are modeled on the Baldrige National Quality Program, with a focus on identifying and meeting the needs of students and other stakeholders through a process of continuous improvement of academic quality. The Dauch College of Business & Economics received its second 10-year reaffirmation of accreditation in 2012, extending a 20-year period of providing the highest quality business education for its students. The ACBSP, recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) as a specialized accreditation agency for business education, is an international organization with over 540 accredited campuses worldwide.
