We believe that excellence in business education requires respecting and valuing the unique characteristics, attributes, and perspectives of all stakeholders in the educational process and results in graduates who possess the knowledge and skills to meet the needs of the future business environment. It is our goal to work together with each of our member institutions to build a unique educational model that reflects the institution’s mission and vision, while advancing academic quality.
