Mercyhurst business school earns reaccreditation by IACBE


The Walker School of Business at Mercyhurst University received reaffirmation of its accreditation with the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE) earlier this March.

“Our accreditation validates that The Walker School of Business has quality programs. This quality makes Mercyhurst students more marketable to employers, and helps them become more easily accepted into graduate school,” said Raj Parikh, Ph.D., dean. “It also helps the university attract better students.”

While it was under Parikh’s supervision as dean that the final stages of accreditation were finalized, former dean Msgr. David Rubino, Ph.D., and Associate Dean Amy Doolan, Ph.D., handled a substantial portion of the preparation for the school’s reaccreditation from 2012-2013.

The business school’s accreditation will be up for renewal in seven years.

Now with accreditation reaffirmed, The Walker School of Business is busy searching for new programs to add to its extensive list of academic programs based on consumer demand and market research, said Parikh.

Additionally, the business school recently reinstated its advisory board, which consists of organizational leaders from the region and nation. The board will advise the school on the creation of new academic programs, strengthening current academic programs and developing new ways to engage students and faculty within the community.
