The International School of Management (ISM) has earned reaffirmation of accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) for its range of business degree programs.

Following an inspection in October 2017, ACBSP’s Board of Commissioners for baccalaureate/graduate degree programs confirmed that the teaching and learning processes for all three of ISM’s programs meet the rigorous educational standards required to gain accreditation.

ISM, whose business programs were first accredited by ACBSP in 2005, is required to complete the reaffirmation process every 10 years to maintain accreditation.

“ISM has shown their commitment to teaching excellence and to the process of quality improvement by participating in the accreditation process,” said Dr. Steve Parscale, Chief Accreditation Officer at ACBSP.

IMBA alumnus Yul Bahat was mentioned as a key source in this fascinating article by EE News Europe about hacker deception.

By 2025, more than half the world’s population will live in water-stressed areas and about a billion more will not have sufficient access to adequate water resources.

That’s according to research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). But what’s being done to address these troubling statistics? And who has the long-term solution? Step forward Aaron Steeves, an entrepreneur from Boston, Massachusetts, who believes his prototype greywater treatment system could revolutionize how we conserve and recycle water.

Entrepreneurship is in Aaron’s blood. His first foray into business was as a young boy peddling a homebrewed soft drink called ‘Sugar Quench’ to his school friends.

As he matured, so did his ideas, and from his accumulated life experience grew a new ambition: to build micro-gyms for time-poor travelers in airport lounges.

In 2016, Aaron took this idea with him to the International School of Management (ISM) in Paris, where it became the focus of his IMBA project.

On February 6, 2018, ISM’s DBA alumnus Enase Okonedo has been named secretary-treasurer to AACSB International’s Board of Directors. “As the world's largest business education alliance, AACSB International-The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) connects educators, students, and business to achieve a common goal: to create the next generation of great leaders.” To find out more, click here: https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/new-leadership-named-to-aacsb-internationals-board-of-directors-300595111.html
