Accreditation Types and Eligibility

IABEE offers two types of accreditation, i.e. General Accreditation (GA) and Provisional Accreditation (PA).

General Accreditation (GA) is intended for programs seeking international recognition through IABEE accreditation.

Provisional Accreditation (PA) is intended for programs newly adopting an outcome-based education system and have not yet produced graduates under the system. A program applying for PA will be evaluated to measure its potentials of meeting the Accreditation Criteria within a foreseeable future (2-4 years).

PA is not a requirement for a program wishing to apply for GA.
