Recognized Programs

Starting in 2013, Business Technology Management (BTM) type programs have the opportunity to seek Recognized status. The Business Technology Management Accreditation Council (BTMAC) will offer an informal review to programs that have not yet produced graduates and do not qualify for an accreditation visit.  The sole purpose of the informal evaluation is to provide comment and advice to the institution with respect to the program. The review will solely focus on the alignment of the curriculum to the BTM Learning Outcomes.  To be successful, a program needs to demonstrate that it produces learning outcomes that are largely aligned with the BTM Learning Outcomes and Competency Standards. Programs that are successful in the review will be allowed to use the term BTM Recognized on communications for a maximum of four (4) years.  No undertaking is given by the BTMAC as to the eventual accreditation of the program. The Recognized status is only available at this time to BTM type program.
