Stillman Business Programs Receive Specialized Accreditation
TUSCALOOS, AL—April 15, 2010--At the 2010 annual conference of the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE) located in Olathe, Kansas, the Board of Commissioners announced the granting of specialized accreditation of the business degree programs of Stillman College. The business program in the following degree is accredited by the IACBE: Bachelor Degree of Business Administration with specializations in Accounting, Marketing, and Management.
Business program accreditation by the IACBE assures the high quality of Stillman College’s business programs. Accredited programs have been examined by trained evaluators who ensure that the IACBE’s standards are being met in eight key areas: outcomes assessment, strategic planning, curriculum, faculty, scholarly and professional activities, resources, internal/external relationships, and educational innovation. The quality of the business programs are measured by the accomplishment of the school’s mission and broad-based goals, the effectiveness of student learning, and the operational effectiveness of the business programs.
John L. Green, Jr., Ph.D., President of the IACBE, notes that, “accreditation is recognition that the business programs of Stillman College demonstrate academic excellence and a commitment to continuous quality improvement. The IACBE is especially interested in the assessment of student learning outcomes. The accreditation process is one means of making certain graduates are well-equipped to excel in the business world.”
“Accreditation is more than just another credential for institutions,” adds William Parrott, Director of Member Services and International Programs for the IACBE. “Accreditation requires evidence that a school’s programs are meeting high standards and producing measurable, high-quality results.”
Based in the Kansas City metropolitan area, the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education is the premier business accrediting association for business programs in student-centered colleges and universities. Stillman College joins a growing list of over 225 IACBE member institutions throughout the world that support quality assurance in education.
