British Commission of Business Administrators Programs –BCBAP is the accreditation of degree-granting higher education institutions around the world. It serves as the common denominator of shared values and practices among the diverse institutions of education and other international sites approved by the Commission that award associate, baccalaureate, master’s, or doctoral degrees. The Commission also accepts applications from other international institutions of higher education.


The Commission develops, makes public and applies criteria for the assessment of educational effectiveness among institutions of higher education leading to actions on their institutional accreditation. By this means, the Commission assures the education community, the public and interested agencies that accredited institutions have clearly defined objectives which meet with criteria published by the Commission; that they have the organization, staffing and resources to accomplish, are accomplishing and can continue to accomplish these objectives. In addition, through its process of assessment, the Commission encourages and assists in the improvement, effectiveness and excellence of affiliated educational institutions.
