Membership benefits

Higher education organizations join the IAABEP for two main reasons – They believe in the mission and goals of the IAABEP and they receive benefits from being a member.

The mission of the IAABEP is to advance academic quality in business programs through evidence-based accreditation that encourages institutions to build unique educational models to reflect their mission and vision.

A major benefit of IAABEP membership is the quality assurance process that can lead to business program accreditation for members who choose to pursue this option.

In addition, there are benefits that are available to all of our members, regardless of their accreditation status. These benefits are designed to promote and to support continuous quality improvement and the IAABEP mission.
