PORTALES—The Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) has awarded reaffirmation of accreditation of Eastern New Mexico University’s College of Business.
Eastern will be presented with a certificate of accreditation during the ACBSP Annual Conference in New Orleans, La., on June 22.
Douglas G. Viehland, executive director of the ACBSP, said, "Eastern New Mexico University has shown their commitment to teaching excellence by participating in the accreditation process, achieving accreditation and continuing the process of quality improvement. This accreditation is evidence of Eastern’s commitment to quality business programs."
Steven Gamble, ENMU president, said, “We are very pleased with the decision to reaffirm the accreditation of our College of Business. It confirms what we already knew: that an outside agency has found the business education we offer to be competitive with that of larger, more expensive universities. It is another example of the personal attention and high-quality experience our professors offer students. We are grateful to our business faculty for their long hours in preparing for the accreditation, as well as their ongoing dedicated service in preparing our students to meet the challenging demands of today’s business world.”
According to Viehland, for institutions that achieve accreditation for their business schools and programs, this attainment certifies that the teaching and learning processes within that institution meet the rigorous educational standards established by the ACBSP. The ratification of accreditation by ACBSP covers a ten-year period during which time ENMU must continually reaffirm its quality through periodic reports.
