UIBS receives initial accreditation from the European Council for Business Education

The United International Business Schools organization is proud to announce the initial accreditation of the United International Business Schools organization (UIBS) by the European Council for Business Education (ECBE) for its Bachelor of Business Administration and Master of Business Administration degree programs offered at its Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia campuses.

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 74 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 December 2010 following a decision from the ECBE Board of Commissioners that was based on the review of a thorough self-evaluation report and an on-campus site visit organized by a team of evaluators earlier this year in October. We are proud of the fact that ours is the first business school in 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!
