Accreditation Institute

The Accreditation Institute is an integrated experience designed to familiarize those who will work in the areas of outcomes assessment, the self-study principles, and compliance. The Institute is required for Candidacy, First-Time Accreditation and Reaffirmation of Accreditation and is highly recommended for all new academic business unit leaders and primary representatives to the IACBE. The topics include outcomes assessment, the self-study, the site visit, and compliance with IACBE reporting requirements.  The Institute is offered in two formats:

  • a two-day format where you will spend two full days, and
  • a three-day format where you will attend in the afternoon on the first day, all-day the second day, and in the morning on the third day.

The Accreditation Institute utilizes the revised self-study principles approved in 2017 and the current Outcomes Assessment Requirements and Self-Study Manual.
