NCU's staff and faculty work very hard to meet and exceed the extensive breadth and depth of the accredited business school requirements based on the Baldridge Educational Criteria for Performance Excellence.
Prescott Valley, AZ (PRWEB) December 2, 2008 -
Accredited online university Northcentral University (http://www.ncu.edu), an innovator in 100% online higher education, was cited as a pioneer in the field recently by Richard Garrett, program director and senior research analyst for Eduventure's Online Higher Education Learning. Eduventures (http://www.eduventures.com), based in Boston, is one of the foremost education consultant firms in the U.S., specializing in collaborative research.
Specifically, NCU was singled out for having been the first accredited online university to feature an ACBSP (Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs) accredited business school. ACBSP is one of two prominent accrediting groups for university business programs and known for its emphasis on teaching excellence.
Dr. Freda Turner, Dean of NCU's School of Business and Technology Management said, "NCU's School of Business was both the first fully online school accredited by ACBSP and the first to be accepted into Delta Mu Delta Honor Society, which previously only served traditional campus students."
Steve Parscale, director of accreditation for ACBSP praised NCU's commitment to online higher education saying, "NCU's staff and faculty work very hard to meet and exceed the extensive breadth and depth of the accredited business school requirements based on the Baldridge Educational Criteria for Performance Excellence."
Dr. Clinton Gardner, president of Northcentral University also added, "NCU offers the first fully online doctor of philosophy program to earn accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, and our School of Education was the first online program to be granted a charter by Kappa Delta Pi, the honor society of education."
Northcentral University courses start monthly and enrollment in the School of Business and Technology Management is now available.
