The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree Board of Commissioners has awarded Walsh University in North Canton, Ohio accreditation of its business programs. ACBSP accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within the business degrees and programs offered through Walsh University meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP.

What Is ACBSP?

ACBSP is a global business education accrediting body with over 1200 member campuses in more than 60 countries and is committed to improving the quality of business schools around the world. From the time a business school becomes a candidate for accreditation, its faculty enters a process of continuous improvement, with a focus on excellence in teaching and student learning. In the accreditation process, the school demonstrates how specific standards are being measured and met, including student learning, curriculum, leadership, strategic planning, faculty qualifications, and stakeholder satisfaction.

Obtaining ACBSP accreditation requires an ongoing effort to maintain excellence in business education, not only regarding curricula and faculty, but also in providing state-of-the-art equipment, software, learning resources, and services for students.


The following Walsh University business programs are ACBSP accredited:

Public Information

The Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) requires that all ACBSP accredited programs or candidates for accreditation make student achievement data available to the public. This does not mandate that the institution post all student achievement data but does "require institutions or programs routinely to provide reliable information to the public on their performance, including student achievement as determined by the institution or program."
