The following are just some of the significant benefits of IAABEP accreditation:

Evidence of quality

Public Accountability

Public Accountability
As a recognized CHEA (Council for Higher Education Accreditation) accreditor, IAABEP recognizes that the demand for public accountability in higher education is growing rapidly. IAABEP’s specialized accreditation provides external accountability for the quality of an institution’s business programs.

Benefits of Accreditation

The award of accreditation to IAABEP member educational programmes in economics, business, management and related disciplines demonstrates to professional academics and the public that the institution’s postgraduate programmes have achieved an internationally recognised level of quality, enabling students, employers and institutions to have confidence in the education provided.

Benefits of programme accreditation for the institution: network, support, motivation and guidance to deliver a dynamic, quality educational programme that meets student and market demands. It can also lead to an increase in demand for its courses.

For students, accreditation is a guarantee of a balanced quality programme that results in an award recognised by other institutions and employers. In addition, it makes it easier for students to transfer between international institutions, while taking away credits for courses taken.
