ACBSP Awards International Business School (IBS) Initial Accreditation of its Business Programs

Overland Park, KS — The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree Board of Commissioners recently awarded International Business School (IBS) in Budapest, Hungary, initial accreditation of its business programs.

ACBSP accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within the business school at IBS meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP.

“International Business School has shown their commitment to teaching excellence and to the process of quality improvement by participating in the accreditation process,” said ACBSP Director of Accreditation Steve Parscale, who will present the Certificate of Initial Accreditation at the ACBSP Annual Conference in Baltimore, Md., on June 17, 2012. “This accreditation is evidence that IBS is committed to providing the highest quality business education for their students.”

ACBSP is a leading specialized accreditation association for business education supporting, celebrating, and rewarding teaching excellence. Established in 1988, ACBSP is the only business accrediting organization for all associate, baccalaureate, and graduate degree programs. Its mission is to promote continuous improvement and recognize excellence in the accreditation of business education programs around the world.

ACBSP continues to grow, having recently added its 10th region to better serve member institutions in South Asia. ACBSP is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) as a specialized accreditation agency for business education. ACBSP currently has 1,051 member campuses, 157 of which are located outside of the U.S. Of those campuses, 541 have achieved accreditation and more than 415 are in candidacy for accreditation. Individual members on these campuses now exceed 9,500.

“IBS has a strategic plan as coherent, compelling, and well communicated to stakeholders as any we have seen before. It is a potential ACBSP “Best Practice” in strategic planning.”
