South College Asheville

The South College School of Business & Technology has earned accreditation candidate status from the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE), which determined that the college’s business programs are eligible for review.

South College, a private institution regionally accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, will pursue IACBE accreditation for the accounting and business administration programs offered at the associate, bachelor’s and master’s levels.

“We place a high priority on accreditation as a component of the excellent educational opportunities we offer our students,” said Dr. Michael E. Dillon, dean of the South College School of Business & Technology. “We are honored to receive candidacy status and are prepared for the rigorous process and review to achieve IACBE accreditation.”

The IACBE provides a process by which institutions of higher education can earn accreditation for business programs. Accreditation is granted by an independent, external evaluation of the quality, effectiveness and outcomes of a school’s programs.

South College was officially awarded candidate status in mid-February based on approval from IACBE’s board of commissioners. The school has up to five years to secure program accreditation by meeting all IACBE requirements.

South College offers business programs online and at its campuses in Knoxville and Nashville in Tennessee, and Asheville.. For more information about South College, visit
