Statement from the School of Business

Effective, July 1, 2014, the North Carolina Central University (NCCU) School of Business voluntarily withdrew from membership in the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).This decision was made with the full approval and support of the Interim Dean, Dr. Wanda F. Lester, the business school faculty and staff, the Chancellor, the Provost, and the Director of University Accreditation.

For the past seven years, the NCCU School of Business has maintained two specialized accreditations:

  • AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business
  • ACBSP – Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs

The recognitions, benefits and opportunities afforded by membership in two specialized accrediting agencies have been numerous and fruitful, however  after many discussions and careful consideration of several key factors, it was determined that the long-term interests of the School of Business would be best served by focusing all resources on one specialized accreditation. 

North Carolina Central University’s long affiliation with ACBSP has provided many beneficial opportunities and resources for our faculty, students, staff and all key stakeholders since 1994.  We are extremely grateful for their continued support over the years.

The university, including the School of Business, is also accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), “the regional body for the accreditation of degree-granting higher education institutions in the Southern states.”

The School of Business affirms its commitment to student success.  The quality of program and services will in no way be affected by the decision to depart from this accrediting body. 

The AACSB International accreditation is the seal of excellence for the School of Business and this continued association will guarantee students the ability to remain progressive, competitive and successful.
