One of the relatively young CHEA approved accreditation agencies for business education, IACBE was conceived as a mission driven Deming Porter Framework model based system that is fully process oriented delivering its assessment based on certain abiding principles that exemplifies the mission of the school. Being younger institution, IACBE rode the technology wave from the start carving now a niche for itself among the global accreditation bodies.
The 1997 vintage principles based programmatic accreditation agency accredits business programs that lead to degrees at the associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels in institutions of higher education worldwide that grant bachelor’s and/or graduate degrees. Dr Green who founded the agency also played key role in AACSB International and later ACBSP, both approved by CHEA. IACBE was set up in response to the expressed needs of presidents, chief executive officers, chief academic officers, and business deans, chairs, directors, and HODs who wanted an accreditation process that was not driven by prescriptive standards relating to inputs and resources, but was mission-driven and outcomes-based one.
IACBE changed its name from International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education to International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE) without altering its original title in 2017. This suggestion was made by SEAA to the IACBE leadership a while ago. IACBE also changed its logo with the name change. Dr. Phyllis Okrepkie is currently the president of IACBE
