NAU-Yuma’s business program earns reaccreditation

NAU-Yuma campus

NAU-Yuma’s Department of Business and Administration has received accreditation from Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), certifying the business programs meet or exceed the required standards. 

 ACBSP accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within the business degrees and programs offered through NAU-Yuma meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP. ACBSP accreditation evaluates leadership, strategic planning, relationships with stakeholders, quality of academic programs, faculty credentials, and educational support to determine whether the business programs offer a rigorous educational experience and demonstrate continuous quality improvement. 

 ACBSP accredited the business programs at Northern Arizona University in 2012. The institution is required to go through the reaffirmation process every 10 years to maintain ACBSP accreditation. 

 “The recognition from ACBSP of the master of global business administration, the bachelor of business administration, the logistics and supply chain management, and the industrial technology management programs as fully accredited programs signifying the standards and criteria of excellence in business education are met exciting,” said Alex Steenstra, chair the Department of Business and Administration. “It recognizes the efforts by the faculty of the Department of Business and Administration at NAU to meet and exceed these industry standards and means that students are receiving the education to prepare them for meaningful positions and careers.  As the department strives to improve access to these programs, ACBSP accreditation will support these efforts.”
