Student Outcomes

Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP)


Cardinal Stritch University and the College of Business and Management are dedicated to a culture of continuous improvement. Continued improvement of teaching, learning and service create a solid student experience and strong student outcomes.

The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) accredits the College of Business and Management and they ask member institutions to publicly post information about student outcomes for the programs covered by accreditation. Here are some indicators we consider important.

  • Student learning outcomes as measured by the Common Professional Components (CPC) of a business degree, such as economics, accounting, finance and marketing. Each year we measure student performance using a national CPC-based Comprehensive exam and compare the progress of our students with students enrolled at other ACBSP accredited institutions.
  • Retention and Graduation Rates of students enrolled in our business programs.
  • Alumni satisfaction, employment status of graduates and percentage receiving promotion, new job opportunities and salary increases.

Student learning outcomes, retention and graduation rates are provided for programs accredited by ACBSP and employment status of graduates and other career indicators are for Cardinal Stritch University alumni responding to a benchmark research Survey of Alumni Engagement by Noel-Levitz (2012).

The College of Business and Management’s Bachelor of Science programs in Business Administration, Management, Strategic Management of Information Systems, and Human Services Management, and the Master of Business Administration and Master of Management, are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).

The College of Business and Management’s recent academic reorganization aligned all traditional and non-traditional business degrees offered at Stritch under the auspices of the College. As a result, the College is working with ACBSP to expand accreditation to all degree programs offered.
