 “Paine College has shown their continued commitment to teaching excellence and to the process of quality improvement by participating in the accreditation process,” said ACBSP Director of Accreditation Steve Parscale, who will present the Certificate of Reaffirmation of Accreditation at the ACBSP Annual Conference in Baltimore, Md., on June 17, 2012.”

A national accreditation from ACBSP makes us stand out our peer competitors. Improvements to our program are made based on contacts and feedback from our student placement in such areas as internships in the community and research presentations which serve as input for evaluating and improving our business program,” said Dr. Okoroafor Nzeh, Chair, Division of Business Administration.
