Andrews University has received specialized accreditation for its business programs through the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE), located in Olathe, Kan. The business programs in the following areas are accredited by the IACBE: Bachelor of Business Administration with concentrations in accounting, finance, information systems, international business, management and marketing; and Master of Business Administration. The accreditation is through November 2016.
The IACBE official notification letter read, in part, "...this accreditation is granted without notes or observations. This is indeed a rare occurrence, and you, the faculty and staff of the School of Business Administration, are to be congratulated on this achievement."
The on-site accreditation took place Apr. 27–29, 2009, and Allen Stembridge, dean of the School of Business Administration, wrote the accreditation report.
Stembridge says of this milestone accomplishment, "This accreditation confirms the quality of the business programs offered at Andrews University and the highly qualified and caring faculty who are dedicated to bringing out the very best in our students."
The IACBE is a specialized accrediting body that promotes and recognizes excellence in business education in colleges and universities at the baccalaureate and graduate levels, both in the United States and internationally.
