Focused on the quality of student learning, it is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). ACBSP’s accreditation concentrates on recognizing teaching excellence, determining student learning outcomes, and a continuous improvement model. Its student-centered teaching and learning approach, which is measured and analyzed for quality, ensures that students gain the right skills from their educational investment. Evaluation standards include leadership, strategic planning, student and stakeholder focus, student learning assessment, faculty focus, curriculum, and business unit performance.

Augsburg is committed to continuous assessment and improvement to ensure that our business program will give our students the skills employers want.
