The Drake College of Business and Public Administration (CBPA) is recognized and accredited by the foremost authorities in the country. To gain and maintain accreditation, the CBPA regularly undergoes reviews by external entities to ensure we are providing our students with the best education possible.
The CBPA is one of only four colleges in Iowa accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International, the principal accrediting body for business programs. Fewer than five percent of the world’s 13,000 business programs have earned AACSB accreditation.
Additionally, we are one of just 14 universities in the United States to be recognized as a Center for Actuarial Excellence by the Society of Actuaries.
