Brenau wins approval of top business school accrediting board

Brenau University received initial approval for its business school programs from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs.

The ACBSP Board of Commissioners´ action puts the Brenau undergraduate and graduate business programs in an elite group of business schools around the world that have been sanctioned by the organization.

“Only about five percent of the business schools globally have ACBSP accreditation,” said Bill Lightfoot, the dean of the College of Business & Mass Communications at Brenau. “Of the 70 or so M.B.A. programs offered by institutions in and around the Atlanta area, fewer than 10 have achieved that status.”

The dean suggested that the ACBSP seal of approval should have positive impact on student recruitment in one of the university´s fastest-growing academic tracks. “What business students look for in an institution is that their diploma will mean something once they get into the world,” he said. “This is an assurance of quality – that Brenau measures up to a higher standard in the business school world.”
