SWOSU School of Business Receives Accreditation from IACBE
May 9, 2005
Southwestern Oklahoma State University's School of Business received accreditation of its business degree programs at the recent annual conference of the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education.
SWOSU Associate Dean Dr. Larry McKee was presented the accreditation certificate recognizing the achievement of quality in the academic business programs at SWOSU. The presentation was made at the annual conference in San Antonio, Texas.
According to McKee, quality assurance is measured by the accomplishment of the school's mission and broad-based goals, the effectiveness of student learning that takes place and the operational effectiveness of the business unit.
"Accreditation is recognition that an educational institution's academic performance is excellent," said Dr. John L. Green, Jr., president of the IACBE. "IACBE is especially interested in the outcomes assessment of education that takes place annually within the academic business unit. The accreditation process is one means of making certain graduates are well-equipped to join the business world."
Based in the Kansas City metropolitan area, the IACBE is an internationally recognized, prominent accrediting body for business and business-related degree programs in four-year and graduate level institutions.
SWOSU joins a growing list of nearly 200 IACBE member institutions in the United States and internationally that support quality assurance in education.
