ACBSP is a specialized accrediting organization that reviews the quality and integrity of business degree programs. ACBSP accredits all business programs at all degree levels such as associate degrees in accounting to doctorate degrees in management. ACBSP offers separate accreditation of accounting programs within the business unit in two ways. Accounting degrees accredited as business degrees through the normal accreditation process and an additional separate accreditation in accounting that is optional and in addition to the business degree accreditation. The business unit's business degrees must be accredited to add the separate and additional accounting degree accreditation. Separate accreditation in accounting is available to baccalaureate/graduate degree institutions only. Accreditation by ACBSP is based on an independent evaluation of an institution's business school or program by a group of professionals, which include faculty and academic administrators in the field of business.
