PINEVILLE –The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) reaffirmed on June 6 the accreditation of Louisiana College’s Division of Business.
“Achieving ACBSP reaffirmation is a rigorous process,” said Cheryl Clark, LC’s interim vice president for academic affairs. “Each accreditation standard assesses a college’s ability to perform in critical areas, such as teaching, research, curricula development, and student learning.”
“This reaffirmation of accreditation for our Division of Business is a credit to our exceptional faculty who clearly and compellingly teach with a commitment to quality,” she said. “Every one of our professors cares deeply about the college and about making sure that students have a tremendous experience during their years at LC.”
First accredited in 1995, LC’s Division of Business is one of the oldest members of ACBSP.
“ACBSP’s reaffirmation of accreditation confirms that Louisiana College’s business program meets the standards of excellence in the areas of leadership, strategic planning, student and stakeholder focus, measurement and analysis of student learning and performance, faculty and staff focus, and education and business process management,” said Arthur Mazhambe, LC’s Chair, Division of Business; and associate professor of business.
“Our Division of Business is deemed to have properly credentialed faculty and adequate resources for managing the business program and to appropriately pursue the mission of the college,” Mazhambe said. “Our division is confident that its history of providing a quality business program will continue.”
“Our current and future students can feel confident they will receive a degree with full programmatic accreditation and recognition. ACBCP accreditation is affirmation of the quality and integrity of Louisiana College’s business degree program,” said Mazhambe.
“What Dr. Mazhambe and our Division of Business faculty have accomplished reflects dedication and hard work,” said LC president Rick Brewer. “Higher education requires superior efforts, and the ACBSP has acknowledged that by reaffirming the accreditation of our Division of Business.”
