Why IACBE Accreditation Matters

Franklin is one of 1,800 institutions worldwide that meet the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE) standard for business excellence. Specialized accreditation is significant because it:

  • Proves that Franklin students achieve learning outcomes.

The IACBE Accreditation Process

IACBE accreditation is a quality assurance program for business programs at the associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels. The institution seeking accreditation voluntarily engages in external, independent review of its educational activities. The process requires the following steps:

  1. A self-study that identifies strengths, weaknesses and level of compliance with IACBE’s Accreditation Principles
  2. A site visit by independent team of peer reviewers
  3. IACBE Board of Commissioners’ review of the self-study and the site visit report
