Bryan College Receives Reaffirmation Of Accreditation Of Business And Management Programs

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

The Board of Commissioners of the International Accreditation Council for Business Education reaffirmed accreditation of the business and management programs offered through Bryan College’s Department of Business and Economics and the School of Adult and Graduate Studies. The Council has seven principles that Bryan College met to receive accreditation. They are: outcomes assessment, strategic planning, curriculum, faculty, scholarly and professional activities, resources, internal and external relationships, international business education and, educational innovation. Bryan College undertook a rigorous self-evaluation; underwent a comprehensive peer review and met the principles to achieve reaccreditation, said officials. 

The IACBE is nationally-recognized by the Council for Higher Education. It is the leader in mission-driven and outcomes-based programmatic accreditation in business and management education. IACBE has hundreds of member institutions around the word and has accredited over 1,500 business and business-related programs in the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Central America and South America. 

“We are honored that the quality of our graduate and undergraduate business program has once again met the high standards of IACBE,” said Dr. Adina Scruggs, dean of Adult and Graduate Studies, and department chair of Business and Economics. “I especially appreciate how the IACBE measures academic quality and excellence in business education as it relates to our mission of ‘educating students to become servants of Christ in today’s world’. The emphasis on mission-related outcomes is fundamental to the entire quality assurance process of the IACBE and truly reflects the desire of our business faculty on campus and online.” 

Bryan College President Stephen Livesay said, “The faculty and staff of our Business and Economics Department are to be congratulated for this tremendous achievement. They are setting a high level of standards for our students which in turn, prepares students for the business world they are about to enter. Thanks to their efforts, our students can confidently enter their professions prepared and ready to meet both present and future demands of business.”
