Respected Accreditation

When it comes to your education and career, choosing a university with accreditation is essential.

Think of education accreditation as a "seal of approval" that provides the credibility to open doors. JWMI is proud to hold two such accreditations.


The Jack Welch Management Institute’s online MBA is programmatically accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). This international program-level accreditation focuses on recognizing teaching excellence, determining student learning outcomes and a continuous improvement model. It measures and analyzes for quality, ensuring that students, like you, gain the right skills from their educational investment. The ACBSP accrediation is internationally recognized and ensures that certain academic standards are met in the program.

Strayer University is an accredited institution and a member of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), Strayer University’s accreditation status is Accreditation Reaffirmed. MSCHE most recently reaffirmed Strayer University’s accreditation status in June 2017, with the next self-study evaluation scheduled for the 2025–2026 academic year. MSCHE is an institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). Setting high standards of educational excellence, MSCHE accredits universities such as Princeton University, Syracuse University, Johns Hopkins University, Temple University and the University of Maryland. This accreditation process ensures institutional accountability, self-appraisal, improvement, and innovation through peer review and the rigorous application of standards within the context of institutional mission.
