UIBS receives extended accreditation from the European Council for Business Education

The United International Business Schools organization (UIBS) is proud to announce the extended accreditation by the European Council for Business Education (ECBE) for its Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree programs offered at its campuses in Belgium, Spain and Switzerland.

ECBE is a registered affiliate of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) and is a membership-driven, non-profit accreditation organization with member schools from around the world. ECBE assures the quality of degree programs and stands for continuous improvement in business education. The accreditation standards set forth by ECBE are based on the European guidelines for higher education as outlined in the Bologna agreements.

The confirmation of accreditation came in May 2012 following a decision from the ECBE Board of Commissioners that was based on the review of an updated self-evaluation report and on-campus site visits organized by a team of evaluators earlier this academic year in December and May. We are proud of the fact that ours was the first (and currently still the only) business school in Belgium and Spain to achieve ECBE accreditation.

Congratulations to all faculty and staff members without whose commendable degree of motivation and dedication to quality higher education it would not have been possible to achieve this important milestone in the history of our organization!
