Trine business programs accredited
Celebration of achievement scheduled
Trine University’s Ketner School of Business has earned Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) accreditation for its bachelor of science in business administration programs, including its golf management program, and the university is spotlighting the achievement at an accreditation celebration on Friday, Feb. 27.
The accreditation certifies that Trine’s teaching and learning processes meet the rigorous educational standards established by the ACBSP. The ratification of accreditation covers a 10-year period, during which member universities must continually reaffirm quality through quality assurance reports.
Douglas G. Viehland, executive director of the ACBSP, spoke of the accomplishment of this accreditation. “Trine University has shown its commitment to teaching excellence by participating in the accreditation process, achieving accreditation and continuing the process of quality improvement. It demonstrates an allegiance to quality business programs.”
Ketner School of Business Dean VK Sharma said Trine rose to the challenge of completing the complex accreditation process “This is indeed an outstanding achievement. We are all very proud of it. National accreditation by ACBSP substantiates that we have tremendously enhanced the curriculum and the quality of students graduating from the Ketner School of Business. We are the first among our regional private peers to earn business school accreditation,” Sharma said.
“We are proud of the hard work required of the Ketner School of Business dean, faculty, and staff to achieve this accreditation, which places the school’s programs among those of the highest-level business schools,” said Trine University President Earl D. Brooks II.
Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita, along with Director of Outreach and Constituent Services Jason Lunderman, will attend the accreditation celebration to congratulate the university community and signify the importance of the Ketner School of Business achievement. Rokita will meet with Trine administrators, guests and business school faculty and students for a luncheon in the Bateman Dining Room before delivering a speech to students, guests, faculty and staff from 12:30-1 p.m. in the University Center’s Fabiani Theatre.
Refreshments will be served in the mall area outside the theater from 1-2 p.m. to celebrate the business school’s achievement. Trine students, staff members and guests are invited to attend.
