ACBSP Accredits the ITU Business Program

ACBSP accredits ITUThe ITU MBA program has received official recognition from premier accrediting organization.

On April 27, 2017, the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) granted full accreditation to the International Technological University (ITU) Master of Business Administration program.

ACBSP accredits over 500 MBA programs worldwide and is recognized by the US Department of Education, and by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation as one of only three specialized accreditation agencies for business education for U.S. universities.

San Jose-based ITU provides relevant and high-quality education to its students. Its MBA curriculum is closely tied to the latest Silicon Valley industry trends and to the Valley’s culture of entrepreneurship. Graduating MBA students of ITU, on average, outperformed graduates of all 500 ACBSP accredited MBA programs in all ten of the knowledge areas tested in a study of graduating MBA students worldwide. In addition to the MBA program, ACBSP has also accredited MBA concentrations in Business Analytics, Healthcare Management, and the Doctorate of Business Administration program.

ITU President Dr. Greg O’Brien noted, “What makes our university truly special are the Silicon Valley leaders, who make up our teaching and research faculty. Our faculty comes from industry-leading companies like HP, Cisco, Google, NASA and ARM. These professors come to ITU to share their industry knowledge…Our faculty work hard to tailor our curriculum to the needs of today’s job market.”

Preparing for the ACBSP accreditation involved the entire university, with the business department, in a rigorous self-study process and external peer review of the program’s quality and rigor. Receiving ACBSP accreditation serves as a catalyst for ongoing and continual program improvement. This accreditation adds to the growing list of accomplishments and recognition for ITU, as a quality institution of higher learning.

According to ACBSP Director of Accreditation Steve Parscale, “Students who go to a business school that has been accredited by ACBSP are assured that the school has been evaluated against standards developed by professionals in the field of business education.”
