Forbes School of Business & Technology Receives Reaccreditation from the International Accreditation Council for Business Education

Ashford University's business school also received special accreditation for its accounting programs

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Forbes School of Business & Technology at Ashford University has been reaccredited by the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE). The accreditation is for seven years. The Forbes School also received special accreditation for its accounting program.

Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media Steve Forbes addresses the Forbes School of Business & Technology Board of Advisors at a June 2017 board meeting in New York City.

The IACBE 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. Its membership includes more than 230 educational institutions in over 20 countries.

"Reaccreditation by IACBE is a testament to the quality of our faculty and programs," says Bob Daugherty, Executive Dean of the Forbes School of Business & Technology. "The process is lengthy and rigorous, and it reflects the commitment to quality by our faculty and academic leadership. IACBE uses the peer review process, which has made U.S. business schools the envy of the world." 

Specialized programmatic accreditation by the IACBE—like that conferred upon the Forbes School of Business and Technology Accounting Program—is a means by which students, the business community, and other institutional stakeholders can be assured that the academic business unit complies with high principles of excellence and follows best practice in education.
