Accreditation and Assessment
The School of Business is globally accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). This requires the School of Business to adhere to international standards of excellence and undergo peer review of our programs and practices. Specifically, ACBSP has accredited our Accounting, Business Administration, and International Business majors. The Business Data Science, Finance, Financial Economics and Marketing programs are not yet accredited.
The School uses feedback from a variety of measures –student assignments, presentations, alumni surveys, results of the Major Field Test (MFT) in business, and employer surveys – to gauge the effectiveness of its academic programs and institute curricular improvements. Data from these instruments is gathered and reviewed by the School’s Assessment Committees. Based upon this review, the committees submit an annual report to the School’s faculty and discuss any changes to the curriculum or program.
The School of Business is committed to enhancing students’ written communication skills: generally, the quality of writing is graded in all 200-level or higher classes that require writing assignments (essays, discussion papers, etc.).
Students entering college in Fall 2020 or later are required to complete a professional development program titled, Backpack-to-Briefcase. This program helps students to strengthen the skills that companies look for in college graduates (e.g., soft skills, leadership, teamwork, professionalism) and to transition smoothly from an undergraduate career to the professional workplace. Students will manage progress toward completion via a JayWeb form. Please see here for more information: https://www.etown.edu/depts/business/advising/backpack-to-briefcase.aspx
