GBSB Global ASIC Accreditation: Why Is It Important?

GBSB Global Business School is accredited by Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges and Universities (ASIC) in the United Kingdom. Our school has earned the Premier status recognition with ASIC for our esteemed academics and quality of operations.
The ASIC accreditation is an important recognition because it helps students and parents make more informed decisions about the university and supports schools, colleges, universities, training providers, and distance learning providers demonstrate to the international student community seeking out higher education that they are a high-quality institution meeting a particular standard of education.


ASIC is recognized by UKVI in the UK, is a member of the CHEA International Quality Group (CIQG) in the USA and is listed in their International Directory, is a member of the BQF (British Quality Foundation), are affiliates of ENQA (European Network for Quality Assurance), and are institutional members of EDEN (European Distance and E-Learning Network).

Sounds impressive, right?

Let us tell you more.

With nearly three decades of international education involvement, ASIC has a profound knowledge and understanding about the international market in education.

In line with business, education today is increasingly becoming more and more globalized. From this understanding, ASIC has realized the need for the regulation of quality higher education institutions. Educational institutions need to ensure that they are engaging genuine and aptly qualified students, while students themselves look to guarantee that they receive a quality academic experience, allowing them to realize their maximum learning potential while having their needs fully addressed by the institution.

ASIC has also obtained many recognitions, memberships, and affiliations over the years in accordance with their commitment to quality education. These are in addition to the organizations noted above.

  • Gained ISO 9001:2015 Accredited Certification
  • Member of GUIDE Association, Global Universities in Distance Education
  • Member of UN Academy Impact group
  • Member of The Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA)

ASIC has been created as a bridge providing independent information to both the student body and the greater industry of higher education through its accreditation service with well-defined and objective benchmarks in place.

The ASIC Accreditation confirms that GBSB Global Business School meets the high standards of education, welfare, and good practice required to become a member of ASIC. The accreditation assures students and agents that our business school is an excellent academic choice, and that we provide the highest quality of professional teaching, valuable certifications, and a positive learning environment.

The ASIC accreditation is not simply a one-time process, where they merely act as a policing body of education institutions. ASIC is dedicated to developing productive, long lasting working relationships with institutions like GBSB Global, among many others and working with them to continuously ensure ongoing, consistent quality education over the long term.
