Beth Richardson, JD, associate professor and chair of the Business Department, received the 2014 Annual International Best of Regions Award from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) on July 1 at the ACBSP 2014 Annual Conference in Chicago.
Richardson's presentation, titled “Organizational Technological Excellence through Experiential Collaboration,” was previously selected as Best of Region One during the regional conference in October 2013.
In her presentation, Richardson introduced a pedagogy developed to initiate technology-based experiential projects with local businesses and organizations, allowing students to introduce technological solutions previously unfamiliar to the organization.
The International Best of Regions award was selected through attendees' evaluations of presentations addressing the theme of Engaged Learning in the Digital Age.
The University of New England's Bachelor of Science in Business Administration is accredited through the ACBSP.
