DENTON — The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree Board of Commissioners recently awarded Texas Woman’s University accreditation of its business programs.

ACBSP accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within the School of Management at Texas Woman’s University meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP.

“Achievement of ACBSP accreditation is an important milestone and represents recognition of our endeavors to provide a quality, professional education while continuously improving all aspects of the School of Management’s educational activities,” said Dr. Ann Hughes, director of the TWU School of Management.
