The UH West Oʻahu business administration program is now a candidate to receive accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). UHWO Professor of Management Linda Randall and Professor of Marketing Derrek Choy recently attended the ACBSP conference in Atlanta, Ga. and received a certificate noting the UH West Oʻahu business administration program’s candidacy following their submission of a written report. In the coming academic year, an ACBSP mentor will visit the UH West Oʻahu campus to conduct meetings with business program faculty, staff, and administration to evaluate the program, followed by a team visit consisting of ACBSP members who will conduct a complete review of the business program in order to determine accreditation.
