The United International Business Schools organization (UIBS) was recently approved to enter candidacy status with the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). Next to its existing accreditation with the European Council for Business Education (ECBE), UIBS plans on completing the ACBSP accreditation process within the next few academic years. UIBS strongly believes in full study program compatibility between both the European and American educational systems.
UIBS was assigned a mentor who will guide the school’s administration and management through the accreditation process which consists of a thorough self-evaluation report and an on-site peer evaluation visit.
“ACBSP is a leading specialized accreditation association for business education supporting, celebrating, and rewarding teaching excellence. The association embraces the virtues of teaching excellence and emphasizes to students that it is essential to learn how to learn.

And further, ACBSP encourages faculty involvement within the contemporary business world to enhance the quality of classroom instruction and to contribute to student learning.”
