UNYP successfully obtained a US Professional Accreditation



The University of New York in Prague (UNYP) and our team of educators and professionals are proud to announce that our life-long learning Master's of Business Administration (MBA) and the European Bachelor's in Business Administration (BBA) programs have earned independent American accreditation by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE, www.iacbe.org).  

IACBE Accreditation Announcement

UNYP Graduation Ceremony of 2013, IACBE from University of New York in Prague on Vimeo.

The IACBE accreditation provides a stamp of approval confirming the quality of UNYP's business programs.  UNYP is the first and only Czech Higher Education Institution obtaining a US professional accreditation. It is also the first IACBE accredited Institution in the CEE.  This American accreditation of UNYP's business programs is a powerful complement to the existing British Accreditation Council  accreditation of the Institution (BAC, www.the-bac.org ). It demonstrates our success in achieving our stated goal of preparing students to succeed in the international world of business. We provide students with a solid foundation in business management and an appreciation of the cultural considerations of international leadership. These international accreditations add to the key accreditation from the Czech Ministry of Education which UNYP earned in 2001 which has been continually renewed (MŠMT, www.msmt.cz).

UNYP is really proud to offer “triple” (Czech, US, UK) accreditation for all its undergraduate and graduate business programs!
