May 16, 2018 – The Board of Commissioners of the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE) recently reaffirmed accreditation of the business and management programs offered through Bryan College’s Department of Business and Economics and the School of Adult and Graduate Studies. The Council has seven principles that Bryan College met to receive accreditation. They are: outcomes assessment, strategic planning, curriculum, faculty, scholarly and professional activities, resources, internal and external relationships, international business education and, educational innovation. Bryan College undertook a rigorous self-evaluation; underwent a comprehensive peer review and met the principles to achieve reaccreditation.

“We are honored that the quality of our graduate and undergraduate business program has once again met the high standards of IACBE,” said Dr. Adina Scruggs, Dean of Adult and Graduate Studies, and department chair of Business and Economics. “I especially appreciate how the IACBE measures academic quality and excellence in business education as it relates to our mission of ‘educating students to become servants of Christ in today’s world’. The emphasis on mission-related outcomes is fundamental to the entire quality assurance process of the IACBE and truly reflects the desire of our business faculty on campus and online.”
