Advancing Academic QualityThe IACBE – Advancing Academic Quality and Recognizing its Achievement

The IACBE is the global leader in mission-driven and outcomes-based programmatic accreditation for business and management education in colleges, universities, and other higher education institutions throughout the world whose primary purpose is excellence in teaching and learning. It is the philosophy of the IACBE that academic quality and excellence in business education should be measured in terms of the educational outcomes of an academic business unit relative to its mission rather than by prescriptive standards relating to academic resources. This emphasis on mission-related outcomes is fundamental to the entire quality assurance and accreditation process of the IACBE.
