school of business accreditation rsAssociate Dean of WNMU's School of Business Dr. Miguel Vicéns accepts a certificate of Full Reaffirmation of Accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs at the accrediting body's conference earlier this month.Silver City, NM – The Western New Mexico University School of Business has recently been granted Full Reaffirmation of Accreditation under the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). This is the third reaffirmation of the WNMU School of Business, and the accreditation runs for ten years.

Associate Dean of the School of Business, Dr. Miguel Vicéns, attended the 30th Annual ACBSP conference to accept a certificate of WNMU's accreditation and continue learning with School of Business faculty from all across the nation.

"I am extremely happy to have achieved full reaffirmation of our accreditation. The ACBSP assures the quality of our degrees, as well as the international recognition of quality in our programs. As part of this reaffirmation, the School of Business has established a five-year strategic plan, a marketing plan, and an assessment plan to ensure continuity of quality programs," Dr. Vicéns said.

The ACBSP Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree Board of Commissioners examined the business programs at Western New Mexico University this spring, taking into account many factors, including program learning outcomes, stakeholder satisfaction, leadership and faculty qualifications.

Therefore, the ACBSP accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within the undergraduate and graduate business programs offered through the WNMU School of Business meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP, which accredits business programs at nearly 1,200 campuses in 60 countries.

The WNMU business programs were first accredited by ACBSP in 1997, and the university is required to go through the reaffirmation process every 10 years to maintain accreditation.

"Western New Mexico University has shown a commitment to teaching excellence and to the process of quality improvement by participating in the accreditation process," said ACBSP Chief Accreditation Officer Dr. Steve Parscale, who presented the Certificate of Reaffirmation of Accreditation at ACBSP Conference 2018 in Kansas City, Mo. "This reaffirmation of accreditation is evidence that WNMU is committed to maintaining the highest quality business education for their students for the next 10 years, just as they have done since 1997."

The WNMU School of Business received support from the local community, university administration, WNMU students and other stakeholders. "Many people participated of the accreditation process, and for that, I thank them. We couldn't have achieved this milestone without continuous support throughout the assessment process," Dr. Vicéns said. "We are committed to the continuous improvement of our academic offerings and to providing experiential learning opportunities to all interested stakeholders."
