The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business earns ACBSP accreditation

The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business at Post University accomplished a major achievement. We've earned accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). The organization is known internationally as a gold standard in business higher education accreditation, and earning the recognition is no easy feat.

ACBSP accreditation for the degree programs offered through our business school is in addition to the University's accreditation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), which the University has held since 1972.

Being ACBSP-accredited confirms the excellence of the undergraduate and graduate education provided through The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business. Earning the accreditation is especially fitting for us because the ACBSP and Malcolm Baldrige School of Business promote and celebrate similar principles -- innovation, business excellence, leadership, creativity, and quality. These are the principles championed by our business school's namesake, Malcolm Baldrige, and we're excited to continue teaching them to new generations of students with ACBSP accreditation under our belts.

Many business students look for colleges and universities that have ACBSP-accredited programs because it's a mark of high quality. Likewise, many employers look for job candidates who earned their business degrees from ACBSP-accredited programs for the same reason. That's one of the reasons earning this accreditation was so important to us, our students, and our alumni.

It's been a thrilling time at Post, and we remain deeply committed to driving excellence and continuous improvement in our business and other programs.
