The Belleville campus of the Lindenwood University School of Business and Entrepreneurship was notified November 19 that it had received accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), the premier global accrediting association for business schools and programs with a focus on teaching excellence. Lindenwood University’s main campus in St. Charles, Mo., achieved initial accreditation in 2010.
“Lindenwood is committed to continuous improvement of its undergraduate and graduate programs in business and entrepreneurship so that our students will be prepared to meet the demands of their employers,” said Dr. Judy Eberhart, chair of the School of Business and Entrepreneurship at the Belleville campus. “Our terminally degreed faculty prepares students through teaching excellence with an emphasis on real world application. Our student focus is on developing oral and written communication skills, as well as critical thinking.”
ACBSP standards are modeled on the Baldrige National Quality Award Program, which is used by thousands of organizations to guide their enterprises, improve performance, and get sustainable results.
