The mission of the IACBE is to promote and recognize excellence in business education in institutions of higher education worldwide, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, through specialized accreditation of business programs.
To be the business program accreditor of choice for teaching-oriented institutions of higher education globally.
The mission of the IACBE is to advance academic quality in business programs through evidence-based accreditation that encourages institutions to build unique educational models to reflect their mission and vision.
In addition, at their December 2018 meeting, the Board of Commissioners reviewed the accreditation principles and recommended the highlighted changes.
