As I finish my BA degree at Penn State, I'd like to earn a Masters in International Business (MIB) from a German University. Much of them are accredited by the FIBAA (Foundation for International Business Administration Accreditation). I can find a lot of information on what the FIBAA is and how they operate as a State accrediting agency, in addition to how it is similar to US accrediting bodies. What I can no find is if this accreditation agency is recognized by the US Department of Education. If anyone can help me out with this, that would be nice. I'm looking for a definitive yes or no answer here. I know that CHEA doesn't even acknowledge they exist but I'm wondering about the US Dept. of Education. To us Americans, going to a foreign school is nice, especially when earning a degree but when we return to the USA there is only one thing that matters, the question of whether our foreign degree will be recognized by the US Department of Education. If not, the degree is no good to put to work in the US, especially when considering civil/federal employment. Jeremy P.S. I've tried links to the US Department of Education yet can't find the answer regarding the FBIAA as their method of organization, and ease of use to US citizens are emblematic of all that is wrong with our Government.
