Business department recognized by IACBE

Jamestown College’s Department of Business, Accounting and Economics has been recognized by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE) for achieving reaffirmation of accreditation.

Jamestown College offers four majors accredited by IACBE: accounting; business administration (with concentrations in accounting, business communication, financial planning, general management, global business, hospitality and tourism management, and marketing); financial planning and wealth management; and liberal arts business studies.

Reaccreditation was achieved through the department’s rigorous self-evaluation; a comprehensive, independent peer review; and demonstrated compliance with the following accreditation principles: outcomes assessment, strategic planning, curriculum, faculty, scholarly and professional activities, resources, internal and external relationships, international business education, and educational innovation. In addition, the department has demonstrated a commitment to continuous improvement, excellence in business education, and advancing academic quality.

The IACBE was founded in 1997 and is nationally recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. The IACBE is the leader in mission-driven and outcomes-based programmatic accreditation in business and management education for student-centered colleges and universities throughout the world. The IACBE’s mission is to promote and recognize excellence in business education in institutions of higher education worldwide, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, through specialized accreditation of business programs.
