Over the years, the IBA has received quite a few international accreditations, as you can see below:
The Open University in Britain this was the first British accreditation that we received in 1994. We went through a long and detailed process, the result of which was that we were approved and confirmed as being at the same level as British Universities. From initial approval for the award of DipHE, the IBA started the top-up bachelor degree from 1998.
London South Bank University (LSBU) the second accreditation we received came from this university, who had taken an interest in the IBA because of our knowledge and use of e-learning technology. The IBAs e-learning concept was subsequently adopted by the University. This accreditation enabled the IBA to offer the Master of Science in International Business in cooperation with LSBU. More recently the Bachelor degree has also been transferred from the Open University to LSBU.
Coventry University the third accreditation was awarded to the IBA in 2006 by Coventry University a renowned institution with a track record of international studies. As a result, the Executive MBA degree, which has been running for several years at Coventry University, is now offered at the IBA by part-time study with a blended learning element aimed at addressing the needs and time constraints of the modern business manager.
Network of International Business Schools (NIBS) the IBA has been a member of this worldwide business school network since 1995. This year, NIBS is introducing its own accreditation system. The IBA will the first member to undergo the accreditation process, which takes place in February.
