Fontbonne University Receives Business Accreditation

ST. LOUIS – The Fontbonne University Bonnie and L.B. Eckelkamp College of Global Business and Professional Studies has achieved voluntary accreditation from the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) demonstrating it has met standards of business education that promote teaching excellence.

The ACBSP accreditation validates Fontbonne’s progress, evolution and commitment specifically to its business students’ academic success, according to university officials. The accreditation encompasses the school’s main business programs, comprising the traditional bachelor’s in business administration, the OPTIONS bachelor’s in business administration — an accelerated format designed for busy adults — and the university’s master’s in business administration. Fontbonne’s main accreditation is provided by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

“We’re proud of this new status because it acknowledges Fontbonne’s rigorous academic programs, and because it makes a promise to the next generation of students,” said Linda Maurer, dean of the College of Global Business and Professional Studies. “It confirms our emphasis on continuous improvement and our focus on the future.”
