The Dahlkemper School of Business is proud to be the first area
institution of higher learning to be awarded national accreditation
of its undergraduate and MBA programs by the
Accreditation Council for Business Schools and
Programs (ACBSP) at http://www.acbsp.org/.
In 2000, the Dahlkemper School of Business underwent a rigorous
review process leading to this prestigious recognition. The
ACBSP evaluated curriculum, research, internships, faculty and
teaching methods and found Gannon to be exemplary.
The Council for Higher Education (CHEA) has formally recognized
the ACBSP. The ACBSP was the first and is currently the only
business accrediting agency to achieve such a distinction.
CHEA acts as a national policy center and clearinghouse on
accreditation for higher education.
The ACBSP accreditation was the latest in a long line of local
and regional firsts for the Dahlkemper School of Business. The
Dahlkemper School of Business was the first in the region to have
both the undergraduate and graduate business programs accredited by
a national accrediting body for management education.
ACBSP accreditation, coupled with the University's existing
national and regional accreditations, is an assurance of the
Dahlkemper School of Business' academic excellence and program
quality. This unique distinction aids prospective students and
employers in assessing the stature of the Dahlkemper School's
undergraduate and graduate programs. Equally important, it
confirms Gannon University's continuing role as the region's
institutional leader in undergraduate and graduate business
