Quality Assurance

Teaching evaluation and the graduate survey display feedback from the students.
Regular study programme audits ensure the implementation of internal and external quality requirements and hence accreditation.
An “Assurance of Learning“ process reviews whether the set qualification objectives of the study programmes have been successfully achieved.

Quality Development

  • Structural and developmental planning includes results from regular self-evaluations and promotes measures for improvement.
  • Relevant stakeholders such as the advisory council and alumni are involved in the further development of the programmes. .

The system accreditation awarded by the FIBAA in 2013 is confirmation of the successful strategy in the implementation of the quality objectives.
