Fall 2009 | Archives

students MCC was awarded reaffirmation of accreditation of the business program by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) Associate Degree Board of Commissioners at last month's ACBSP Annual Conference in San Antonio, Texas. This represents the 19th annual presentation of institutions being accredited since the founding of the ACBSP 21 years ago.

Douglas G. Viehland, Executive Director of the ACBSP, spoke of the accomplishment of this accreditation. "MCC has shown their commitment to teaching excellence by participating in the accreditation process, achieving accreditation and continuing the process of quality improvement. This accreditation is evidence of MCC´s commitment to quality business programs," Viehland said.

MCC President Randy Schmailzl is pleased to receive the ACBSP reaffirmation of accreditation. "We are proud of this achievement and will continue to work to meet and exceed the needs of students in the metropolitan area. MCC will strive to remain among the highest ranked business schools in the area," said Schmailzl.

For institutions that achieve accreditation for their business schools and programs, this attainment certifies that the teaching and learning processes within that institution meet the rigorous educational standards established by the ACBSP. The ratification of accreditation by ACBSP covers a ten-year period during which MCC must continually reaffirm its quality through quality assurance reports.

MCC also received approval for the Medical Transcription Program. The Approval Committee for Certificate Programs, a joint committee established by the American Health Information Management Association and the Association for Healthcare Documentation and Integrity (AHDI) approves medical transcription certificate programs. The approval designation assures healthcare providers that graduates of the MCC Medical Transcription Program possess the necessary job skills to attain success in entry-level medical transcription positions.

Tom Pensabene, Dean of Information Technology and e-Learning said, "MCC is now one of only 20 schools that have attained this approval from AHDI. It is a tribute to the hard work of both our full- and part-time faculty to maintain such leading-edge quality standards in times of burgeoning need by the community."
