Q. Who accepts the AUC School of Business Executive Education CEUs?
A. Executive Education providers such as Berlitz Language Centers, Dale Carnegie and Kaplan International Centers. However, just like credits that are granted by one university and transferred to another, any organization has the right to accept or reject CEUs. ACCET is a well-known organization that is recognized as upholding standards of excellence when it comes to continuing and executive education, and therefore, many organizations will accept the School of Business Executive Education CEUs. If a participant is concerned about whether a particular organization or association will accept the School of Business Executive Education CEUs, it is recommended that he/she contact this organization or association directly.
Q. Can the School of Business Executive Education CEUs be used for college credit?
A. CEUs are different from college credits. CEUs were originally designed for professionals who had already attained a certain level of education and needed to take a certain amount of continuing and executive education. Therefore, the School of Business Executive Education cannot assure the participant that he/she is accepted by academic institutions, but it is recommended that the participant contact these organizations directly.
