The IACBE, has extended its’ accreditation to business programs of institutions of higher education that offer only associate degree programs with the intent to request that these programs be included in the IACBE’s scope of accreditation with CHEA.

It’s not one size fits all. Our philosophy is 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. We work together as partners on your journey. Throughout your accreditation preparation, we’re here to provide guidance for your self-study. Helping you understand your site visit team’s needs. And acting as your liaison between the academic business unit’s response to the team’s findings and the IACBE Board of Commissioners, who will determine your accreditation status. But our partnership doesn’t end with your certificate of accreditation. We’re dedicated to helping business programs stay relevant in today’s competitive business landscape, sharing significant opportunities for professional development, networking, and sharing of best practices in business education.
