The mission of the IFMA Foundation's Accredited Degree Program is be the lead international advocate and expert in quality Facility Management higher-education, and to promote, support, and accredit Facility Management degree programs.  The Facility Management Accreditation Commission oversees the FM ADP Program Standard and Procedures.

This standard was first developed in 1996 by the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) Committee on Recognized Programs. In July 2007, IFMA and the IFMA Foundation agreed that the IFMA Foundation should assume responsibility for the Recognized Degree Programs. In 2009 the IFMA Foundation upgraded the Recognized program to an Accredited Degree Program (ADP).
