Limestone College’s Department of Business & Economics was accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) in 2017. ACBSP is a specialized global business accreditation body following the Baldrige 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 Business & Economics Programs at Limestone College are continually looking to improve. Each year we test our seniors in all areas of business and compare our results against other ACBSP accredited schools. Our goal is to consistently perform at or above the 50th percentile in all subject areas. Below are our results for the past three academic years:
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 preforming. 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). We report on these statistics every other year, so our next update will be in the summer of 2021. Below are a few of our matrecies:
In addition, the Department of Business & Economics tracks our retention and graduation rates. Below are the Business Department’s retention rates as well as our 4 and 6 year graduation rates for students starting in 2009 through 2016 (note: the 2016 entering class would normally graduate in 2020).
