The assembly has more than 240 member institutions and has accredited more than 1,000 business and business-related programs in the United States, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Central America and South America.

Girdon holds a doctorate degree from Rutgers University, master’s degrees from St. Lawrence University and Boston University and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware.
