Distinctions among Accreditation Agencies for Business Programs
Corcoran, Charles P.
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v4 n9 p27-30 Sep 2007
Over the past twenty years, business accreditation has become a growth industry.

Today, over forty-two percent boast of such external validation of their programs. Although the three principal accrediting agencies all profess to uphold the highest academic standards, marked differences exist. The ACBSP and IABSP share certain qualities that distinguish them from AACSB. However, the AACSB brand, long synonymous with the biggest and the best, remains unchallenged. (Contains 2 tables.)
