"We practice what we teach and what businesses do and ACBSP recognized that that quality."

Professor Gary Kaskowitz, chair of the Economics and Business Department explained that ACBSP accreditation assures students that they are gaining the right knowledge and skills for their educational investment. “We are focused on our students and preparing them for them for life after college. We work with local businesses to understand their needs as well as to provide opportunities to students, importnat activities recognized by ACBSP.”
