The Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs ( ACBSP ) is the leading specialized accreditation association for business education. Founded in 1988, ACBSP was created by its members to fulfill a need for specialized accreditation by institutions of higher education with business schools and programs.
In June 2005, ACBSP approved a new strategic plan with a new mission and vision statements. In addition, the seven regions were expanded and now require the provinces and territories of Canada. As of April 2006, ACBSP membership required 403 educational institutions as members, 297 of which have successfully achieved accreditation. In addition membership requires twelve corporations and thirteen emeritus. Nearly 4,600 persons at these entities are individual members and receive benefits of membership.
ACBSP's vision is to become the global leader enhancing the quality of business schools and programs focused on teaching excellence. More information on the ACBSP and details of the annual conference can be found at: www.acbsp.org.
