Leadership Degree Programs Now Accredited by ASEL

By Amanda Morad | February 27, 2012

The Academy of Strategic and Entrepreneurial Leadership (ASEL) has conferred accreditation upon four programs in Regent University's School of Global Leadership and Entrepreneurship (GLE).

The Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership, Master of Arts in Strategic Foresight, Doctor of Philosophy in Organizational Leadership and the Doctor of Strategic Leadership were granted full accreditation in mid-February; this achievement will be recognized at ASEL's annual conference in April.

According to ASEL's website, the Academy's rigorous standards require that accredited institutions practice non-discriminatory policies; emphasize student achievement and high academic standards; ensure quality of teaching, learning, research and service; assure accountability through clear communication to the public and higher education community; and have plans and practices which foster continuous improvement of accredited programs.

"Attaining this accreditation is confirmation that [GLE] offers high quality leadership degree programs with qualified professors through reliable systems, all the while measuring what we do and using the information to continuously improve our programs and delivery methods," said Dr. Bruce Winston, GLE's dean.

The ASEL accreditation self-study and site visit evaluated professors' credentials, interviewed students about the program quality and service, and examined physical technology infrastructure to verify what the school presents to the public.

Accreditation is for a period of 10 years, during which Regent will have full membership to the Academy. GLE will submit an annual report of activities in the four programs being accredited to address program improvements.

"This accreditation confirms that the school delivers what it promises," said Winston.
