Business Accreditation

ACBSP AccreditedLimestone College’s Department of Business & Economics was accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) in 2017.  ACBSP (https://acbsp.site-ym.com) is a specialized global business accreditation body following the Baldridge model focused on teaching excellence and continuous improvement.  ACBSP evaluates business programs in areas of leadership, strategic planning, stakeholder relationships, quality of academic programs, faculty credentials, and quality improvement.

In conjunction with ACBSP, the Department of Business & Economics at Limestone College is continually looking to improve our programs.  Each year we test our seniors in all areas of business and compare our results against other ACBSP accredited schools in the Southeast.  Our goal is to consistently perform at or above the 50th percentile in all subject areas.

Below are our results for the 2016/17 academic year:

ACBSP test for 2016

While test scores and grades are important,  we believe that one of the best assessments to measure how we are doing is to ask employers and site supervisors of our internship programs how our students and graduates are performing.  We regularly ask these stakeholders to rate our students and graduates on a scale of 1 (very dissatisfied) to 5 (very satisfied).  Our goal is to have all 4s (satisfied) and 5s (very satisfied) with 75% ratings of very satisfied.  Below are a few of our matreces (note:  included more granular data in 2013):

Percent of Employers Satisfied with the Quality of Work of Limestone Students/Graduates Percent of Employers Satisfied with the Quality of Work of Limestone Students/Graduates
Percent of Employers satisfied with Limestone Student/Graduate’s Depth of Knowledge Percent of Employers satisfied with Limestone Student/Graduate’s Depth of Knowledge
Percent of Employers satisfied with Limestone Student/Graduate’s Ability to Follow Instructions Percent of Employers satisfied with Limestone Student/Graduate’s Ability to Follow Instructions
