Message from the Chancellor S. Peter Horn

The International School of Management (ISM) is proud to announce the 10 year, unconditional reaffirmation of the accreditation of its business programs -- MBA, IEMBA, DBA, and PhD -- by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).

ISM has positioned itself as a premier management development institution, drawing on interdisciplinary culture to seek new opportunities; making research, and education integral to one another with probably one of the best worldwide mixes of executives, including more than 90 nationalities represented in the student body.
Founded in 1988, ACBSP recognizes best practices that contribute to continuous improvement of business education and accredits qualified business programs. It is the leading specialized accreditation association for business education rewarding teaching excellence and is recognized for its strong contribution to management education by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). Recognition by CHEA affirms that standards and processes of accrediting organizations are consistent with quality, improvement, and accountability expectations that CHEA has established. Furthermore, I have been appointed to the Board of Commissioners of ACBSP to help other business schools attain the same high standards that have been achieved by ISM's business programs. This is indeed an honor for our institution.
