About IACBE:

At the IACBE, we believe 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 with you as partners on your journey. Throughout your accreditation journey we are here to provide guidance and support to help you understand the accreditation process and requirements. In addition, we act as a liaison between your institution and the IACBE Board of Commissioners, who will determine your accreditation status.

But our partnership doesn’t end with your certificate of accreditation – at the IACBE we are dedicated to helping you to move your business programs to the forefront in today’s competitive landscape. We provide opportunities to develop as a leader, to engage in professional development, to network with your colleagues, and to share best practices in business education.

A Brief History of the IACBE

The International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE), formerly the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education, was founded in 1997 in response to the expressed needs of higher education administrators, business program leaders and faculty who wanted an accreditation process that was mission-driven and outcomes-based. Since that time, the IACBE has grown into the leading outcomes-based professional accreditation agency for business and management education in colleges and universities whose primary purpose is excellence in teaching and learning. The IACBE has hundreds of member institutions with campuses worldwide, and has accredited more than 1,800 business and business-related programs worldwide. Significant recent milestones include:

  • 2011 (January), the Board of Directors of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) granted recognition to the IACBE
  • 2016, the IACBE membership approved extending accreditation to associate degree business programs offered by community colleges and other two-year institutions
  • 2016, the first institutions with IACBE accredited business programs earned special accounting accreditation for their accounting programs
  • 2017, the IACBE held its 20th anniversary celebration at the annual conference in San Francisco
  • 2017, the IACBE changed its name to the International Accreditation Council for Business Education to more accurately reflect its accreditation services
  • 2019, the CHEA Committee on Recognition approved a change to the scope statement that added accounting programs and removed the statement that excluded institutions of higher education that offer only associate degrees in business from the IACBE’s approved scope.

CPD Explained:

So, what is CPD? CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and is the term used to describe the learning activities professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities. It enables learning to become conscious and proactive, rather than passive and reactive.

CPD combines different methodologies to learning, such as training workshops, conferences and events, e-learning programs, best practice techniques and ideas sharing, all focused for an individual to improve and have effective professional development. There are over 1000 institutes & professional bodies across the UK, a number that is forecast to increase.

Accompanied by such growth is the acceptance that academic qualifications must offer more vocational and skills-based or ‘practical’ learning. A structured, practical and methodical approach to learning helps employers across industries to keep key staff and develop the skills & knowledge in their organisations to maintain a sustainable and competitive advantage.

Engaging in Continuing Professional Development ensures that both academic and practical qualifications do not become out-dated or obsolete; allowing individuals to continually ‘up skill’ or ‘re-skill’ themselves, regardless of occupation, age or educational level.



It has become a major concern for worldwide universities, government bodies and students that some educational agents are using unethical and sometimes illegal practices to recruit international students.

Many universities no longer use educational agents for recruitment purposes, for fear of giving their university a bad name in the global education field. This is having a detrimental effect on universities, agents and students.

Educational agents and counsellors need to be confident that the students they send abroad have their needs catered for. This should include good accommodation options and varied social and welfare support, as well as a good education and efficient meet and greet service.

QISAN also provides a referral service for students, educational agents and educational institutions worldwide.

Students may apply direct to QISAN for free advice, referral to an appropriate institution or to their nearest QISAN accredited agent.

QISAN is also able to offer educational agents and institutions a wide variety of services and has now become the premium ‘one-stop shop’ in international education.

QISAN’s head office is in the North East of England, but will soon be opening offices in India, Malaysia, Taiwan, China, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Australia and USA.
