Concordia University Irvine’s School of Business and Economics has been re-accredited for the maximum term of seven years by the International Accreditation Council for Business Education. Concordia’s Masters in Business (MBA) and Economics and Business Administration undergraduate programs all employ best pedagogy practices while achieving a high level of academic excellence.
Irvine, CA., August 11, 2023 –
The School of Business and Economics (SoBE) at Concordia University Irvine has been re-accredited by the International Accreditation Council of Business Educations (IACBE) for the maximum possible period of seven years. This accreditation specifically accredits the SoBE’s Masters in Business Administration (MBA), Economics and Business Administration undergraduate programs (Business Data Analytics, Business Economics, Finance, Healthcare Management, International Business, Marketing, Management, and Sports Business), as well as a specialized accreditation for their Accounting program.
The SoBE achieved the highest possible IACBE recognition by demonstrating a commitment to continuous improvement, excellence in business education, and advancing academic quality in its business programs and operations. The SoBE’s career-relevant courses are taught by academically and professionally qualified Christian faculty, and the SoBE places emphasis on developing extensive relationships with external constituencies.
“Continued accreditation of the School of Business and Economics underscores Concordia’s commitment to students, alumni, and employers to provide quality, career-relevant programs, curriculum, and degrees,” said George W. Wright, Dean of the School of Business and Economics. “Continuous accreditation is significant and rewarding. The accreditation process ensures and validates the quality of our efforts to continuously improve and implement best practices in both the undergraduate and graduate ecosystems of business and economics."
The SoBE’s seven-year reaccreditation affirms Concordia University Irvine's vision of preparing students to become wise, honorable, and cultivated citizens. This achievement builds upon the SoBE’s 25-plus years of service to its constituents and its culture of continuous improvement. The next reaccreditation is scheduled for 2029-2030.
