Standard 1 of the 2013 Business Accreditation Standards of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International summons assessment of a business school’s mission, impact, and innovation. In light of Standard 1, meritorious might prove presentation of, e.g., undergraduate business law courses while hearkening to professional certification examinations available to business schools’ undergraduates and recent graduates. Prerequisite to the award of the Certified Commercial Contracts Managers (CCCM) credential from the National Contract Management Association is, inter alia, the passing of a professional examination substantially oriented to the Uniform Commercial Code. This CCCM examination can be undertaken immediately upon receipt of the bachelor’s degree. Its successful completion marks a near-term and attainable goal. Student alertness to undergraduate business law courses as preparation toward this examination could provide payoffs incentivewise, moralewise and careerwise.
