CROOKSTON, Minn. – The University of Minnesota Crookston’s business department recently was granted official accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).
UMN joins the ranks of 1,200 member campuses globally to be accredited.
In addition to attaining regular accreditation for the eight business degree programs, the university also received separate accreditation for the accounting degree program, which makes UMN Crookston one of only two universities in the state with this separate accreditation, according to a news release by the university on Tuesday, June 30. The other school is Walden University.
“Our department and campus have always had a strong focus on quality and continuous improvement to benefit our students in preparing them for their future careers,” Kevin Thompson, unit head for the Business and Humanities, Social Sciences, and Education Departments, said in a statement. “Being a part of ACBSP will bolster our efforts and bring us to a new level of teaching and learning excellence.”
Thompson said that ACBSP accreditation offers resources, best practices, and connections with member colleagues that will benefit students and the university.
