Seneca business programs recognized by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs

Seneca is the only college in Ontario to have business programs receive this international accreditation

Toronto, Jan. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Twenty-three of Seneca’s business programs, including six honours bachelor of commerce degrees, have been accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), an international body with member campuses in 60 countries.

Seneca joins an exclusive group of 11 postsecondary institutions in Canada and is the first college in Ontario to receive this distinction. Accreditation provides member schools access to exchange programs, research opportunities and a global education network through ACBSP. 

“We are thrilled that Seneca has joined a very select group of Canadian postsecondary institutions that have earned ACBSP recognition,” said Jeff McCarthy, Dean, Seneca Business. “Having 23 Seneca business programs accredited globally speaks to the expertise and dedication of our faculty and sets our graduates apart from the competition when they begin their careers.”

The ACBSP accreditation includes ongoing evaluations of leadership, strategic planning, relationships with stakeholders, quality academic programs, faculty credentials and educational support.

Students play a role in setting ACBSP standards, with a focus on teaching excellence and continuous program improvement. They also benefit from broader acceptance of earned credits, credibility from employers and credential recognition from regulatory bodies.

“Seneca has shown its commitment to teaching excellence and to the process of quality improvement by participating in the accreditation process,” said ACBSP Chief Accreditation Officer Dr. Steve Parscale. “This accreditation is evidence that Seneca is committed to providing the highest quality business education for their students.”
