A committee of the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) has reviewed and certified a quality assurance report by West Virginia University at Parkersburg for its business degree programs.

This certification by the ACBSP Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree Board of Commissioners is an extension of WVU Parkersburg’s 2013 accreditation with the organization for its associate and bachelor’s degree programs in Business Administration and Business Technology.

The accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within the two- and four-year business programs offered through WVU Parkersburg meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP, which accredits business programs across the world, at more than 1,000 campuses.

“The ACBSP accreditation demonstrates our commitment to a continuously increasing level of excellence for our business degree programs and ensures our students gain the skills employers want,” said Jeff Holland, chairperson of the Business, Accounting and Public Service Division, WVU Parkersburg.
