FM Accreditation Commission
Accreditation is a voluntary process of quality assurance used by universities and institutions designed primarily to distinguish schools adhering to a defined set of educational/academic standards.
The accreditation process is also known in terms of its ability to effectively drive student performance and continuous improvement in education. While accreditation is a set of rigorous protocols and research-based processes for evaluating an institution’s organizational effectiveness, it also takes into consideration the program, cultural context and the community of stakeholders to determine how well the parts work together to meet the needs of students and the public.
The purpose of the FMAC Accredited Degree Program (ADP) process is to promote excellence in undergraduate and graduate degree programs in the field of facility management. The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) and the IFMA Foundation have sponsored the development of the FMAC and the ADP programs, along with vigorously supporting the educational needs of current and future IFMA members as well as non-member FM professionals.
