In an unprecedented relationship and legal agreement since 2004, the ACBSP and the GAFM have a mutual recognition agreement.
Our ACBSP/GAFM Alliance: Leverage Your ACBSP Membership into Something More
In 1996, CEOs, executives, professors, and industry experts from around the world formed the Global Academy of Finance and Management (GAFM). Much like ACBSP, our organization seeks to raise education standards and ethics in business and management. Because of our shared focus, ACBSP and the GAFM certifying body have created a
partnership that automatically sanctions your program for board certification, and we encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity.
Dr. George Mentz, CEO for the GAFM, commented that: “GAFM’s Certification Program is a stamp of excellence for your students and alumni. It shows that your business programs provide the top standards needed for students to compete for jobs with recognized certification to earn professional careers in management.” Dr. Mentz also noted that your students can earn a certification relevant to their business major—a real board certification backed by European TUV and ISO education standards and global educational quality standards.
Students can apply directly through GAFM.com for certification under the ACBSP Exemption as long as they have a 3.0 or higher GPA and a concentration of four or more courses related to the certification they are seeking. Business school professors from ACBSP-accredited programs may also nominate new students directly to GAFM.
Like other certification bodies, the ACBSP school can use the GAFM Quality Standards logo on their websites and brochures and Certified Students can be verified on the GAFM website.
